When Northerners want to cover ground, they fire up a snowmobile. The Peace Valley Snowriders have three great groomed trails in the Mighty Peace.
Wesley Creek Trail

2. Charter A Scenic Flight
Pioneered by First Nations people, snowshoeing is an indigenous way to master the snows. It is a great way to work up a sweat and visit trails that you would not have the opportunity to by foot. Misery Mountain Ski Area, Figure 8 Lake, Wilderness Park and Lac Cardinal Provincial Park are all great places to snowshoe.
4. Skiiing & Snowboarding
Skiing and snowboarding is one of the best ways to experience winter in the north. With the scenic trails, fresh air on your face and the possibility of seeing wildlife there is not much more you can ask for. Misery Mountain Ski Area trails are friendly for both beginning riders to the most advanced skiers and snowboarders.
Experience hockey and skating the way nature intended it to be on a big frozen lake. There are groomed outdoor rinks in various communities as well as groomed family rinks at the Alberta Pond Hockey Championship.
6. Road Trip
Take a vehicle and tour our full day Heritage Buff Tour. This tour will take you approximately 8-10 hours and you will experience the Mighty Peace’s natural beauty while stopping at historic sites on the way.
