Everybody loves the Sno-Bus!


Took this video from the back of the Sno-Bus during the first weekend of Winterlude Sunday. We started at Dows Lake, then continued along most of the 7.8 km (4.8 miles) of the Skateway all the way downtown.

I sped it up double-time (which means the audio isn’t understandable) but I made it for the view of the Skateway, not the sounds! Maybe you’ll be amazed at how many people are skating. I was amazed by how many runners there were along the path next to the Skateway (watch for bobbing heads in the video!).

I got a great shot of them brushing the snow off the Canal surface just after the Pretoria Bridge. Only missed the very end / beginning of the Canal downtown because the Sno-Bus turns down Laurier to drop people off at Confederation Park aka Crystal Garden to admire the ice sculptures.
