“We have snowshoeing, cross country skiing, geocaching, find the avalanche beacon, a build the snowman area for kids, sledding, a country walk and ball hockey due to the fact the pond isn’t quite frozen over,” says coordinator Susan MacNeill.

With favourable weather conditions in the forecast she’s expecting over 2,000 people will attend.

MacNeill says admission is free and notes on site sponsors will also provide free juice, coffee, hot chocolate, root beer, smores and bannock.

There will also be prizes and fireworks. The fun starts at noon and wraps up at 5:30 p.m.
