They call it a “winter playground” and for a good reason. The spot is a popular place for skiing, cat skiing, cross-country skiing, back country skiing, snowboarding, fat biking, snowshoeing and more.

However, even just a simple stroll through the quaint village when it’s completely covered in snow is a sight to be seen.
