This year Silver Skate is providing you the tools to sculpt your own Silver Skate Winter Experience!
Feel the breeze on your face as you glide along the city's largest skating pond while listening to a tuneful compilation of Edmonton-based music. Marvel at the artistic talent on display in the Waiward Snow Sculpture Garden. Explore the Folk Trail, visit this year's Heritage Village installation, and listen to local Indigenous elders' oral histories via Night Sky Story Telling. Grab a Winter Box from one of the local culinary partners and explore Hawrelak Park. See how fast you can skate Silver Skate's traditional 1km race loop on the pond - can you beat the record for most loops in an hour? This winter, Silver Skate is offering an abundance of DIY winter-friendly experiences and challenges that are as diverse as the people who call our Northern community home.
Everyone is invited to rediscover the joy of that first childhood snowfall or discover that joy for the first time. You'll be challenged to embrace your environment: explore the river valley, go for a skate, make a snow angel, or visit a winter patio. Winter is magic, and the outdoor experiences in our city are limitless.
Grab your mittens and toques and create your Silver Skate Winter Experience now!
