Get the shovels and let the creative muscles flow, Cool Digs is Winnipeg's latest fun-in-the-snow initiative.
As part of Winterpeg's programming, Winnipeg Trails has partnered with Storefront Manitoba to have people engage in a snow fort competition.
There are two different competition streams the public can participate in, the Community Stream and the Design Stream.
This section of the competition is open to everyone, whether it is a school group, sports team, family or friends. This competition runs from February 1 to March 31.
- Assemble your team.
- Choose a site anywhere across Winnipeg.
- Upload weekly progress pictures and the final product within the allotted time to social media and tag #cooldigs @winnipegtrails @storefrontmb. This is how your fort is brought to the jury for selection.
- Register your team and site at the link below before March 31.
- Win cool prizes! Including weekly feature prizes and grand prize winners.
For those who are creative and want a bit of a challenge, this section is perfect. Selected projects will be featured in a map for the Winter Cities Conference from February 15-17. This stream has been closed for registration since January 20, 2023.
It is encouraged if a project is not selected for the design stream, to participate in the community stream.
