Dinner and a movie is a classic Valentine’s Day date (or Netflix and chill because it’s 2019). For those couples that like to stay active or try something different on February 14, there are plenty of options.
Couples Yoga at Aurora Yoga and Spa
Located right on Jasper Ave and 112 St., spend your evening connecting with your partner through yoga. Student drop-in rates are $12 per person and you can sign up for the session on their website at AuroraYogaSpa.com.
Skiing and Snowboarding
Between Snow Valley, Rabbit Hill, Sunridge and the Edmonton Ski Club, there are plenty of opportunities to take part
in some winter sports. Prices vary depending on where you go and what equipment you need, but this is generally not a cheaper option. But if you and your Valentine want to get to know each other on the t-bar or chair lift, check out one of Edmonton’s ski hills.
The Surf Studio
Stay indoors and dream about that next Hawaii trip at the Surf Studio. They have a variety of workouts you can sign up for, and the first session is free. You can book sessions on their website at TheSurfStudio.ca.
Weather permitting, there are a few opportunities to go out on a snowshoe adventure with your partner. For $33 each, you get snowshoes, a guided hike through the river valley around Whitemud Park, as well as hot chocolate and bannock afterwards. Bookings are done through the City of Edmonton’s website.
Rock climbing at Vertically Inclined
Drop in before 8:30 p.m. and for $35 per person, you get a day pass, orientation, and equipment. It’s an opportunity to fall for each other (and catch each other, too) while getting in a workout. Vertically Inclined is located on 8523 Argyll Road and is open until 11 p.m. Thursday night.
