If you haven’t heard of Craig McMorris you must be living under a rock. Craig is one-half of the McMorris and McMorris TV show, alongside also being a well-known professional snowboarder, event host and older brother to Canadian Olympic bronze medalist Mark McMorris. We caught up with Craig (it wasn’t hard as he currently has a broken leg) to ask Craig what he would do in Saskatchewan if he only had 48 hours. Find out what Craig’s 48 Hour Saskatchewan itinerary is below…
Destination: South Eastern Saskatchewan. The entire province is a must-see, but I sure love south-east.
Stay Here: Start the trip off with a little luxury at the Hotel Saskatchewan. This hotel is full of history and right in the heart of Regina, you simply can’t go wrong.
Do This: Once you drop your bags at the hotel, take a sunny 4-kilometer walk around Wascana Lake. Here you will see the Saskatchewan legislative building and walk over the world’s longest bridge over the shortest span of water.
Try This: Head over to the locals watering hole Victoria’s Tavern for great food and real locals. Also, if your feeling a little shaggy (that is on your head of course) all you have to do is grab your drink from the bar and walk right up the stairs into the Ragged Ass Barber for a top notch haircut.
Don’t Do This: Swim in Wascana Lake. Everyone will know you are from out of town…
Stay Here: After splurging last night on a hotel, save your loonies and do as the locals do, go camping. About 12% of Saskatchewan is covered in lakes so there are infinite possibilities of places to camp. My favourite is Echo Valley Provincial Park at the Echo Lake Campground.
Do This: Saskatchewan isn’t known as a hiker’s destination but contrary to popular belief there are a ton of beautiful hikes. One of my favourites is this little lookout point right in the Echo Lake Campground. The hike only takes about a ten minutes (more of a brisk walk) from bottom to top on a little goat path. Be sure to bring up some food, drinks and a blanket as this is by far the best place to watch the sunset.
Try This: Get on the Lake! Whether it be fishing, water sports, or simply going for a swim it’s a must to take advantage of time on the water. When it gets hot in Saskatchewan, this is by far the best way to cool down.
Don’t Do This: Forget mosquito spray.
Have an extra day? Camp one more night at Echo Lake Campground and in the morning head on over to Echo Ridge Golf Course. The course is a fun little nine hole that is forgiving and extremely fun to play.
