McCreary, Manitoba, Canada
The Ski and Maple Syrup Capital of Manitoba
|Alpine Archie - McCreary's mascot since 1978.
This one and a half tonne statue was sculpted by George Barone.
|Picturesque, with tree lined streets, McCreary basks in the shelter of the scenic, wooded Riding Mountain National Park. Unpolluted air, an abundance of excellent drinking
water, and top grade recreation facilities for all seasons from alpine skiing, if we can get the ski hill opened again, and snowmobiling to swimming and golfing exist here. Also
there is great cultural diversity to suit all tastes through the library and arts council.
Camping, boating, fishing, swimming and picnic sites at lakes that are as near as 15 minutes are a recreational haven and great attraction. Excellent water quality and supply
provide unlimited scope for development opportunity. Favourable wildlife habitat provide recreational and tourism potential.
Mount Agassiz Ski Resort is considered by many to provide the best skiing between the Rockies and Thunder Bay. Mt. Agassiz was the site of the alpine events of the 1979
Canada Winter Games. Agassiz is located in Riding Mountain National Park, 16 kilometers west of the village of McCreary. However, the ski hill is not open at the present time.
McCreary and District, the Ski and Maple Syrup Capital of Manitoba, welcomes you!
|Come visit McCreary in winter, spring, summer, or fall!
