Hit the (nearby) slopes

Get in the groove for your mountain ski or snowboard trip by taking some runs (or lessons!) at Rabbit Hill, which is now open for the 2018-2019 season. Open until 9 PM on weeknights and 5 PM on weekends.

D-25512 Township Road 510 A, Leduc County, 780-955-2440, rabbithill.com

Spin your wheels in a winter wonderland

Go for a 2 km “drive through” in your own car on Castrol raceway under hundreds of thousands of vibrant LED lights and animations (and an appearance from Santa himself!), with a portion of proceeds going to 630 Santa's Anonymous and Canadian Tire Jump Start. Engines run until January 5. 

Castrol Raceway, Highway 19 & Highway 2 (2 km west of Nisku), 780-461-5801, castrolraceway.com

See a singing Christmas tree

From December 13 to 16, see dancing Santas, ballerinas, Christmas classics and, most impressively, a 35-foot singing Christmas tree of 150 choir members at the Jubilee Auditorium. The Singing Christmas Tree is one of Edmonton’s most inspiring and charitable Christmas events of the year. Every December, the Singing Christmas Tree raises funds in support of the John Cameron Changing Lives Foundation.

Take a Muttart Light Walk

Experience magic as you walk through the Temperate Pyramid at the Muttart Conservatory. There will be a variety of light installations that will light up the space and transform it into a winter wonderland. Check out the illuminated sights from December 14 until December 27.

Take a Christmas light tour with ETS

It’s time to get into the festive spirit with the ETS Holiday Lights Tours, returning this year from December 14 to 16. Every year, ETS operators and their families volunteer to chauffeur and host tours for friends, families and newcomers to view the festive lights.

Starts at the Alberta Legislature, 9820 107 St., 780-427-7362, edmonton.ca
