Cross Country Ski
Police Point Park and Elkwater in the Cypress Hills are your winter cross-country ski spots. Find rentals and designated trails in both locations.
Follow the many natural and forested trails through Elkwater in the Cypress Hills for a snowshoe adventure. Find trails and rentals in Medicine Hat at Police Point Park.
Kin Coulee Park is a favourite. The hill is lit up into the evening and always perfect on a snow day. Elkwater in the Cypress Hills builds a snow luge each year. A must-try.
Find many community rinks around Medicine Hat — check out Kiwanis Central Park for a small skating rink amongst 100+ year old Cottonwood trees. Or head out to the Skating Trail in Elkwater and glide through the forest.
All the things you need to play crokicurl are in Strathcona Island Park, so look up the rules and head out for a round or two. Winter fun, here you come.
If you haven’t played disc golf in the winter, you really need to, and if you haven't played disc golf at all, then you really, really need to! Find two great courses in Medicine Hat, in Kiwanis Central Park, Leinweber Park, and Gilwell Park.
Hidden Valley Ski Resort
Hidden Valley Ski Resort is a winter wonderland snug in the prairies, approximately 45 minutes outside of Medicine Hat in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. With tall, snow-kissed lodgepole pine and aspen trees and rolling hills that act as mini mountains, this oasis is a must-see in the winter.
