Stay warm this winter by checking out some fun indoor and outdoor Saskatoon tourism attractions. 

Those who have been to the Saskatchewan city of Saskatoon know that Sasktonians don’t let minus double-digit weather slow them down. They embrace the outdoors as much as they do the indoors. They still trudge through the snow and ice to get to work, school, and play. If you plan on visiting Saskatoon, be like a Saskatonian and check out some of these 7 Saskatoon tourism hot (and cool) spots in winter.

1. Glide Alongside the South Saskatchewan

Named as one of the best ice skating spots in Saskatchewan by Flare Magazine, the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink at Nutrien Plaza beside the historic Bessborough Hotel is the place to see and be seen showing off your pirouettes and hockey moves in winter. The rink has seen more than 46,000 visitors in a season, with an average of 500 skaters per day. You can soak and relax afterwards back at your Saskatoon hotel with Jacuzzi rooms.

2. Sip on some Suds

Saskatoon is becoming more known for its microbreweries and distilleries. Warm up while sampling some of the best craft beers and spirits at more than 9 Saskatoon establishments recommended by SaskDrinks.com and our Choice hotel in Saskatoon.

3. Step Back in Time

If you’re curious to see what Saskatchewan was like back at the turn of the century, a visit to the Western Development Museum will take you there. The museum not only has one of the largest collections of human history artifacts, but it also features a replica of a typical Saskatchewan boomtown in 1910 with more than 30 buildings to explore.

4. Admire Some Art

A centre for modern art, film and programming, the Remai Modern Art Museum has 11 gallery spaces, with both permanent and rotating exhibition. You and your kids can partake in art–making activities for all ages or take in a workshop. The museum is also the site of the buzzed-about Shift restaurant.

5. Strap on some Skinny Skis

Saskatoon may not have many hills, but it does have fantastic cross-country/Nordic ski areas, where you travel along groomed and ungroomed trails, take a lesson, and explore local parks and wilderness areas.Some ski areas are pet-friendly, perfect if you are staying at the Comfort Suites Saskatoon pet-friendly hotel.

6. Make it a Game’s Night

Looking for something different to do? Saskatoon’s Breakout Escape and Game Lounge offers fun family activities, including Saskatoon’s first board game lounge which has an expansive collection of board games, as well as a number of themed escape rooms designed for groups of 4-12 people. The game lounge is located at Breakout’s Faithful Avenue location, just 4.2 kilometres south of the Comfort Suites.
