Hot happenings in the coolest capital

When the frosty season comes to Yellowknife, visitors experience a whirl of wonders. The sun slips behind the outcrops, giving the glorious Northern Lights a dark stage on which to dance. Snow bathes the wild paths, allowing dogsleds to race silently through the evergreens. The lakes glaze over, permitting ice-anglers to return to their favourite frozen fishing holes. And events like the SnowKing Winter Festival add even more sparkle to the short bright days and Aurora-washed nights.

That's what journalists Amanda Lowe and John Lehman discovered when they came to Yellowknife on assignment with the travel website Toque and Canoe. Have a look at all the fun they had.
