Victoria Park Oval: A Zamboni gives most Canadians a warm feeling, since it prepares the ice for a hockey game, or some recreational skating.
Snowy city from the Shaw Convention Centre
Snow is heavy in the trees
Frost can form on facial hair, on a cold day outdoors
Snow trucks “blade” the streets in the neighbourhoods, clearing snow, and spreading sand and gravel, to make it easier to get around
If you feed the birds during winter months, you’ll have plenty of company!
Opening day at the Victoria Park Oval 400M skating rink
Moose on the trails, near Stony Plain, Alberta
Rabbits turn white in the winter, for camouflage
Speed skaters can check their speed at the rink!
Skating is available at City Hall, along with chairs, to help you balance. There are used skates to borrow on some weekends
I’ve been taking pictures, as well as looking at photos that I already have, to try to help you understand some of the vocabulary, and some of the activities for winter in Edmonton. It’s such a pretty season, so I have a lot of photos to choose from!
