Cultus Lake Park in Winter

Cultus Lake Park offers visitors and locals something special during the off-season. Fall, winter and early spring are magical times at the park. The summer crowds are nowhere to be found, the lake is silent, and the park is peaceful.

From October to the end of April, Cultus Lake Park offers those looking to get away from it all the opportunity to enjoy a crisp morning walk, to bundle up and hike through one of its multiple trails, or to spend time on the water, enjoying the more calm, quiet side of Cultus Lake Park.

Behind the lake, the mountains shimmer with snow, as Main Beach beckons those out for a walk to come and watch a spectacular sunrise or sunset. For those looking for nature, it’s the perfect time to visit.

There are days when it feels like you are the only one in the park, on the beach, or on the water. For many, spending an hour or two out kayaking or canoeing during this time of year is what they look forward to the most – the ability to connect fully with Mother Nature. And every once in a while, you can bear witness to someone braving the cold water and clad in a wet or dry suit, wakeboarding across the glass-like surface of the lake.

Photographers find this time of year to be incredibly rewarding at Cultus Lake Park. They are enamoured with how the light reflects off the lake, how the trees shimmer on a frosty morning, and how the mountains loom – white-tipped and majestic over it all. For both amateur and aspiring photographers, the off-season is a great time to visit.

No matter what the season, a visit to Cultus Lake Park is always a great idea!
