There’s just as much fun to be had playing on our lakes in the winter as in the summer. Activities in our winter months take the chill out of the cold season’s air.

For those  who love to fish year-round, there are plenty of great spots to go ice fishing. A line, a few books, and some bait are all you need to have tight lines all day as your catch several keepers! With frozen snow-covered trails and lakes, getting into some of the back-county lakes is a lot easier in the winter compared to summer months!

They offer miles of natural beauty as you glide through the snow. For updated information on trail conditions or upcoming Community Ski Day announcements visit the Lac La Biche Ski Club’s Facebook Page. If you’re travelling in from outside the region multi-day rentals are available from many outfitters in urban centers, including Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) or Totem Outdoors Outfitters both located in Edmonton.

If a little more speed it to your liking,then the lakes and backcountry of Lakeland Provincial Park & Recreation Area is where you’ll want to go! With snowmobile trails for every type of rider, and many additional cut-lines that hide powder pockets of snow throughout the winter. GPS is highly recommended if you’re new to the area, as it is easy to get mixed up or find yourself down a different trail then one intended. For trail map information check out our maps online or request one to be mailed to you.
