For the summertime urbanite, the Sault also has enough to keep one busy; dog parks, skate parks, downtown street parties, walks along the boardwalk, a summer concert series, outdoor yoga and fitness classes, and a 22.5 km non-motorized hub trail are just some of the amenities to take advantage of. In the winter, students can take part in ice fishing, fat biking, skating, skiing, snowboarding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice caves, hiking, and more.
