Ready to kick your winter up a notch or three? Then take it to New Brunswick. With the highest snowfall in the Maritimes, this is your ultimate winter playground.

Get your skis on and hit any of our four ski hills, including the highest vertical in the Maritimes. When you’re done going ‘whoosh’, say “mush” and head out dogsledding. Yup, even our canines are pulling for a little excitement. Or, hit the open trails and put a check mark next to adventure on your snowmobile. If cross-country treks are more your pace, we’ve got you covered with spectacular trails.

In the winter, our parks become wonderlands, perfect for family frolicking. You and your little nippers can also take your pick of our many fun-filled winter festivals, featuring skating, sliding, jumping, riding and plenty more for kids big and small.

Once you can’t feel your toes, warm yourself up with a host of indoor activities. From family-friendly museums, to galleries, theatres, and activity centres – New Brunswick really is ‘winter central’, inside and out.
