My Winter Destination: Saskatchewan!

Board of Directors - Pat Friesen

Though many of us yearn to escape to warmer climates this winter, we might have to stay closer to home. During the pandemic, we know it’s for the best to keep everyone safe. While we fondly daydream about past travel memories, we can also start planning our next dream vacation.

My local CAA Travel Consultant helps with my travel plans—no matter when or where I want to go with my family. I invite all our members to travel with someone you trust. Take advantage of the experience and knowledge of our travel consultants. They’re always ready to help and are just a phone call or email away.

This issue, we decided to highlight everything our province has to offer. Discover some hidden gems around Saskatchewan on page 19. And get insider tips from our travelling Saskatchewanderers about must-see sights, sounds and experiences across the province.

Like many other Saskatchewanians, I’m an avid camper. One of my favourite spots is Cypress Hills, a true local gem. Sure, it’s a wonderful summer destination, but during winter, it comes alive with cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, hiking and even outdoor camping.

Many Saskatchewan destinations offer awesome winter activities. Do a little research to see which areas offer winter adventures. Depending on how much snow Mother Nature throws at us, you can have fun in your own backyard: Build a snow person, erect a fort or have a friendly game of snow tag.

When you’re out and about this winter, don’t forget about CAA Rewards partners. You can save on dining, accommodation and other road trip experiences. Of course, your CAA membership card will also come in very handy if you need to call for roadside assistance!

Every winter, I remind myself to take care of my car before leaving home and always drive to conditions. For a refresher about winter driving, turn to page 36. Adjusting driving behaviour goes hand in hand with the changing seasons in Saskatchewan.

The value of my CAA membership certainly helps, no matter where I roam. But we should all remember: There’s no place like home!

Take care. Stay safe.
