Spring is just around the corner – and so is the urge to get outdoors and embrace a healthier lifestyle, which must be why March is the Nutrition & Fitness Month! Let’s get into everything you can do to keep fit in March in Red Deer.
So – let’s talk about outside. One important aspect of embracing a healthier lifestyle means realizing the great outdoors is awesome and Red Deer has plenty to remind you of that. Waskasoo is home to cultural hotspots like the Kerry Wood Nature Centre and Gaetz Lakes Bird Sanctuary (the province’s OLDEST bird sanctuary). Did we mention you can access over 100 kms of trails in the Waskasoo Park trail system? These trails connect various parks and facilities in Red Deer’s river valley together. The Kerry Wood Nature Centre offers some awesome drop in programs including a Random Snowshoeing Adventure taking place this weekend from the 17th to the 18th.
There’s still time to hit the slopes. Canyon Ski Resort is going to be the place to catch some great ski action, offering a whopping thirteen hours of skiing between Wednesdays and Fridays till March 25th, weather permitting. Plus, if you’re looking to get ready for next season, you’re in luck: purchasing season passes now will mean you can ski this month for free.
Lastly, you can set aside a few hours every Tuesday night to hit up some trails courtesy of Pursuit Adventures! These tours include snowshoes, hiking poles, headlamps, guides and wine or beer with wings afterwards – the best end goal after a satisfying hike in the city.
