Top 5 Things to do in Saskatoon this Winter (2022 Outdoor Edition)

Let’s face it, we get a lot of winter in Saskatoon. The city is full of things to do, even in the winter.

There’s no need to stay inside and wait for summer, get out, explore the city and have some fun this winter. These activities are fun for all.

Here are 5 of Saskatoon’s top winter activities.

I’ve included outdoor activities, Christmas lights viewing, and indoor winter activities (because sometimes it’s just too cold to be outside for long).

BHP Enchanted Forest

At the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park, the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation and the City Hospital Foundation host the BHP Enchanted Forest, a unique holiday event. For 24 years, this special cooperation has brought holiday joy to Saskatoon residents as well as tourists from all around Saskatchewan and beyond. The BHP Enchanted Forest, one of Canada’s greatest and longest-running holiday light displays, is a source of great pride for Saskatoon. This unique holiday season, take in the light show from the comfort and security of your own car once more.
