5 Things to Do in Sudbury This Winter
Just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you have to stay inside all winter long! There certainly isn't a lack of things to do here in Sudbury; we're surrounded by so many parks, trails and lakes that can be enjoyed all year round. Here are 5 of our favourite things to do in winter in Sudbury that we think you'll love, too!
1. Skate Down an Outdoor Skating Path
You may have laced up your skates at any of our arenas or played a few hockey games at outdoor rinks, but have you ever tried Sudbury's outdoor skating paths? Whether you're going with friends or bringing the kids, you're sure to have a blast!
Nina's Way at Kivi Park is a popular pick, with a 1.3km path that winds through the trees and tons of pretty lights twinkling overhead for a picturesque view. Also located in the city's south end is the Ramsey Lake Skate Path, which is approximately 1.5km long and located right next to Science North. Heading into downtown Sudbury, you'll find the Queen's Athletic Skating Oval, perfect for the beginner skater!
2. Go Skiing at Adanac Ski Hill
If you enjoy hitting the slopes in the winter, you can do so right here in Sudbury! If you've never gone skiing before, why not try something new?
Located in the New Sudbury Conservation Area, Adanac Ski Hill offers snowboarding and downhill ski activities, and has 240 vertical feet of skiable terrain. It's great for all ages and skill levels. If you're a beginner, definitely take advantage of the lessons offered!
3. Catch a Sudbury Wolves Game
If you're a hockey fan, why not spend an evening at the Sudbury Community Arena cheering on our very own Sudbury Wolves?
Catching a Wolves game is one of the most popular things to do in the winter months in Sudbury, and it's easy to see why! Fun for the whole family, you can participate in interactive activities, win big in the 50/50 draw, and get the chance to see yourself waving on the big screen. And don't forget to grab yourself some Wolves merch!

4.Go Tobogganing at Bell Park
Who doesn't love to spend a day tobogganing with friends and family? Bell Park has become a popular spot for tobogganing, especially next to the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre. You'll also find another hill at the Elizabeth Street entrance. Spend as much time as you'd like racing down both of these awesome hills, and make sure to stop at any local south-end coffee shop for a hot chocolate afterward!
5. Go For a Winter Walk
With Sudbury being surrounded by forest, it's no surprise that there are tons of year-round walking trails for nature lovers! The Lake Laurentian Conservation Area in Sudbury's south end has 23km of picturesque trails that can be enjoyed in the winter months for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and cycling. Fielding Memorial Park in Lively is another great choice for simple, quick trails!
