Sylvan Lake Winter Fun
Sylvan Lake is an active town that takes advantage of the winter months in classic Canadian form!
If you have the opportunity to drive into our town on a crisp, winter day, you’ll see a picturesque view of our frozen lake covered with young families skating, playing shinny and snowmobiling.
For the winter activities, Sylvan Lake will boast a 5 km Speed Skating Track that will attract speed skating enthusiasts from all over the world. This year local residents and visitors took advantage of a 1 km demo track that was used to encourage all skaters (hockey, figure and speed) to participate and get involved with the sport. The natural ice track has brought enthusiasts from all over the province as we are watching the sport become increasingly popular within our community.
Winterfest is held on the Family Day long weekend every year and gives us all something to talk about for the rest of the season! Families flock to the lake to take part in winter events such as skating, sleigh rides, pond hockey, ice sculpting and the ever-popular Polar Bear Dip.
