Heading up the #5 on my way towards McCreary, I’ve come to this area for dose of rural life and to get the lowdown on Mt. Agassiz. This region is rich with diverse environments not commonly seen or associated with Manitoba.
In the distance overlooking McCreary, you have Riding Mountain National Park and neighboured with the East Escarpment, you have Mt. Agassiz Ski Area. For those who don’t know, Mt Agassiz was the host for the 1979 Canada Winter Games. Everyone I’ve met in the area boasts that this is the best terrain between here and the Rockies to the West and Lakehead to the east in Thunder Bay.
