The Perfect Place For Ice Skating

Once the colder months begin, Sylvan’s namesake Lake freezes over, presenting the perfect opportunity to strap on your skates and hit the ice. With two massive outdoor rinks available, you’ll have no problem playing some good ol’ fashioned pond hockey, or enjoying a leisurely skate with your little ones!

Snowmobiling

Feeling the need for speed? Snowmobiling is a fantastic way to explore Alberta’s backcountry on a heart pumping adventure.

Ice Fishing

A Canadian staple! Bundle up against the chilly weather and set up camp in one of the 100 ice fishing shacks that populate the lake.

Winterfest

Taking place over the Family Day weekend, Winterfest is fun for all ages and features indoor and outdoor events with plenty of activities to enjoy.

Take A Dip

Just because the lake is frozen doesn’t mean you can’t unleash your inner water fiend! Take a dip in Sylvan’s world class aquatic centre and practice your swimming skills for the summer months.
