Ottawa’s climate means we have four distinct seasonal weather realities.
Winter can be cold. But we make the best of it.
Ski hills and trails are just a short drive from downtown. Snowshoeing and snowmobiling options abound. And 2020 marks the 50th year that the Rideau Canal, a world heritage site, is transformed into world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink.
We also throw a big, city-wide party known as Winterlude. (The first of three weekends begins tomorrow.)
There are official sites full of activity, but there are some smaller, cool, community-driven options as well. (An Instagram-ers’ night walk…a rainbow-community party with incredible DJs spinning tunes at a hip eatery…to name just two.)
