Winterlude Fun!

Snowflake Kingdom is a gigantic snow playground that it is constructed every year for Winterlude.

Apparently, it takes weeks for them to make enough snow to construct these huge slides.

But the time spent in constructing them is sure worth it. The line ups were huge and everyone seemed be having a great time.

I’ve never seen a maze made out of snow before.

This is obviously made for the kids though since the adults could easily see over the walls and navigate the maze with little difficulty.

This tube slide looked like a lot of fun as well.

Oh, to be a kid again. This little ski course looked like a lot of fun.

Especially this cool-looking conveyor belt ski-lift.

Another cool thing you can do here at Jacques-Cartier Park is to go for a dogsled ride.

Everything else you could do at the park was absolutely free. But it’s worth spending some money to go for a dogsled ride. You can’t do that every day.

This weekend is the final one for the 2010 Winterlude celebration. If you are anywhere near Ottawa, Ontario or Gatineau, Quebec you really should go and check it out.

I had a lot of fun over the past two weekends. I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos and posts about all of the great things that happen each and every year for this annual celebration of winter.

  1. Hi Chase .. what a great place – and free too. It certainly seems like a wonderful place to see with lots to do .. they've certainly got some imagination and space (I guess) to build all those areas .. no wonder everyone's enjoying themselves! Sorry it's finished – loved the pictures.

    Thanks – Hilary

  2. Hi Hilary,

    This is the last official weekend for the event but I believe the sculptures will stay up for a while.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Thanks for commenting!
