There are few things more quintessentially Canadian than embracing everything that winter has to offer. But concerns over rising inflation have led many Canadians to feel anxious about spending this season. If you are aiming to stick to a financial plan this year, there are still plenty of ways you can enjoy wither. Below, we look at five budget-friendly activities you can plan over the winter season.
Going ice skating at a local rink is a wonderful pastime that requires no more than buying or renting a pair of skates. Many municipalities offer access to outdoor skating facilities to the public for free.
Another way to have some affordable fun over the season is heading to a local hill for some sledding or tobogganing (a toboggan being a type of sled with no runners or skis on its underside).
Snowshoeing is another affordable and relatively low-impact winter activity that you can try. There are many trails and fields where you can try this fun activity. All you need is enough snow!
If you love to go for a walk or run, the province has a variety of trails and pathways, as well as playgrounds, to discover. It is a great way to stay active and explore. If you have a furry four-legged friend, we are sure they would love to join you!
And finally, one completely free way to enjoy winter is to simply spend a day at your local park enjoying the snow with your loved ones – building a snow fort, making snow angels, or taking part in a fun snowball fight.
With a little planning, having fun over the winter season does not have to be expensive.
