WinterShines is a celebration of this chilly season, however no one is rejoicing the closure of outdoor activities today.

As temperatures dip below -30 C with the wind chill, WinterShines organizers decided to close the ice park today due to the frigid weather.

The indoor yoga sessions will continue at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market and the outdoor ice sculptures will remain on display.
