Winter is coming…

We’ve had a fabulous fall this year, but with plummeting temperatures and snow in this week’s forecast, it’s becoming clear that the honeymoon with mild temperatures may soon be over.

But in the Whiteshell, that just gives you one more thing to look forward to. Cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling down the trails or through the deep snow on the lakes, winter festivals, or cozying up in the cabin by a warm fire and looking out over a frozen lake; there’s tons of ways to make the most out of winter in the Whiteshell.

Here’s a little video of some snowmobiling across the powdery lakes that may help you get your stoke-on for winter in the Whiteshell this year. Video courtesy of Scott Benson.

 

 

 

Sundown at Star Lake

Calm and quiet lakes, low sunlight sparkling off the water, mist rising in the early morning, mirror image sunsets: It’s no secret that fall is a great time of the year to explore the Whiteshell Provincial Park and snap a few photos.

As we head into freeze up, here’s a series of sunset photos taken in three weekends at Star Lake this fall.
