Several ponds became excellent skating rinks. For example, the Riley Family Duck Pond at Assiniboine Park. Also, you can visit Harbourview Recreation Complex and St. Vital Park. There you will also find great ponds that are open from morning till night. Some of them even provide special entertainment on weekends.

Downhill skiing/snowboarding

However, it is better to check the working hours and days before you go there. It may be closed due to weather conditions. Stony Mountain Ski Area is another great place to visit during weekends. Holiday Mountain in La Riviere will start its work from Friday, and Falcon Trails Resort - from Saturday.
