Wintertime here in Okotoks is a truly special time. Here at Okotoks Chevrolet Buick GMC, we especially love where we are located in the province, because there are so many activities to do from to December through March. Now’s the time to gather your friends and family and take a weekend adventure in a Chevy or GMC vehicle that’s built to tackle snow, ice, and rough terrain!
Here are some of our favorite winter activities happening near us:
Ice Skating at Olympic Plaza – One of the nice things about Okotoks is that it’s just a short drive in your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado to Calgary, AB, which is where some of the more enjoyable ice skating in the area is available. The spot was originally built for medal presentations during the 1988 Winter Olympics, but now it’s a fantastic skating rink for people of all ages.
Snowman-Making Contest – The Calgary tourism website suggests snowman building as one of the most enjoyable winter activities, and it’s hard to argue with that. Taking it one step further, though, they suggest having a contest in the neighborhood to see who can be most creative with all the falling snow.
Day Trip to Banff – We’ve talked about this spot in previous posts, but even though it’s a bit of a drive in your 2017 GMC Sierra, it’s certainly worth the sojourn. There are gondola rides to the peaks of the Canadian Rockies, and the views alone will take your breath away more than the cold.
So many of the vehicles we sell make winter activities like these really easy and perfectly appropriate for the season. Hopefully you have as much fun this winter as we certainly hope to have!
