The Hottest Summer in Half a Century is coming to Winnipeg in 2017, but before the 50th anniversary of the Canada Games kicks off, a team of volunteers is being assembled to ensure everything is in order.
Today, the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society announced a major legacy project at Fort WhyteAlive. Bison Butte Mountain Bike Course will be the first mountain bike venue to meet national standards in central Canada.
Winnipeg’s 640-acre wild oasis features five lakes, seven kilometres of self-guiding forest trails, and natural adventure for everyone! Canoe and rowboat rentals are available for paddling and fishing for pike, walleye and trout on FortWhyte’s scenic lakes. FortWhyte Alive is home to an abundance of wildlife including waterfowl, whitetail deer, and muskrats.
