We’re often asked about what kinds of winter activities our residents partake in here at Sarilia. In fact, that’s one of the most appealing things about living here in the river valley–nature is right on our doorstep. We don’t have to get in the car and drive somewhere else to experience it.
Here are a few things we like to do when Sarilia is blanketed in snow: cross-country ski, snow shoe, walk on our nature trails, ice fish, and warm up with friends around a bonfire by the river. As they say, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothes.”
And the kids here love to head for the hills to toboggan. We asked a few of them (Gwen’s grandkids) what their favourite winter activity is. Here are their answers.
Jackson (age 11): Having fun with the people in my life that I care about the most.
Bentley (age 5): I love doing canon balls down the hill, being outside, playing with my cousins and racing up and down the hill!
Hannah (age 11, white toque): Just being with my cousins makes me HAPPY!
