La Rivière, Manitoba: Small-Town Living and Year-Round Outdoor Fun
Holiday Mountain Resort has been one of La Rivière’s main attractions since it opened in 1959, turning the small town into a skiing and snowboarding destination. Today, you can enjoy mountain views from the three lifts as they carry you to 11 trails that range from beginner to advanced.
La Rivière is a hot spot for outdoor activity during the summer. Its wide-open spaces invite people to go hiking, biking, and canoeing. You can also explore grasslands, marshes, and aspen forests at nearby Binney Nature Preserve. See more than 35 species of wildflowers along the hiking trails, or hang out with the family while listening to birds at the covered picnic area.
