Winter Holidays: A Guide to Fun!

Winter Holidays: A Guide to Fun!

When the forecast is calling for snow, snow and more snow, don’t fight it, get out there and enjoy all that winter has to offer.


Grab a sled and trek to the top of that perfectly powdered hill.  Tobogganing is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy; nothing beats the thrill of sliding down a snowy white hill. What’s your toboggan of choice? The classic wooden style? The faster and more unpredictable flying saucer, or maybe a sleek crazy carpet? Here’s a list of Calgary toboggan hills to get you started!


For a calmer experience, a nice skate around a local outdoor rink is a great way to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with your kids. Thankfully there are lots of outdoor skating rinks in Calgary.


If the snow is particularly deep, why not try snowshoeing? Modern snowshoes are inexpensive, snap onto all boots and are a fun and interesting way to walk across deep snow without sinking. In fact, snowshoes are a great way to get to the top of a toboggan hill safely and quickly. We are planning to buy Evan a pair this winter for snowshoeing at the lake.

Snow Fort

If staying closer to home seems more appealing, building a snow fort with the kids in the yard is a classic winter activity.  Packing snow into loaf pans from your kitchen is fun way to make snow bricks for building the best fortress on the block.

When playing in the snow, there’s bound to be slips and falls, and not every toboggan run ends in a fluffy pile of snow, but that’s part of the fun. So when your day is done reach for Rub A535™ to soothe and relax tense muscles so you can do it all over again tomorrow.  For the little ones, natural source Rub A535™ Maximum Strength Arnica Gel-Cream is an effective all natural product that makes it the ideal treatment for bumps, bruises and swelling and it’s great for when you’re on the go. When you’re all warmed up at home, you can top off a fun day in the snow, with a nice cup of hot chocolate!
