If you want a good idea of it and even try it out, this weekend is All Bark, No Frostbite up here in Cannington. It'll be a lot warmer this year, last year it was -30. Cannington Dog Sled Races - Home
They are a great organization, they are actually lending us tents for the organization I am with for our winter festival. The Metis do an excellent display, there's sculpture and wood carving, craft breweries, an excellent vendor market. You can meet some of the dogs, horse drawn wagon rides around the village. Highly recommend stopping into the Ginko Tree, really cool tea shop.
My daughter and I will be there all day Saturday, I'll be in a completely black snowsuit and my daughter will be in a completely pink snow suit
