Manitoba has a typically dry climate with very distinct seasons that have sharp temperature changes. During the winter months, temperatures can be as low as -40 degrees celsius, and in the summer months, temperatures of 38 degrees celsius are not uncommon. The snow is deeper than 1cm for over 130 days of the year, so the region is known for its long winter and snowy conditions. Despite the coldness, skies are often completely clear and due to very low levels of pollution, stargazing and northern lights viewing are excellent nighttime activities.

Guests staying at The Lazy Bear Lodge enjoy a truly authentic experience; hand-crafted over ten years, the exterior is built with logs harvested in the surrounding area, while inside is created from rescued local materials such as timber from old church and the glass from an 1800s Hudson Bay Trading Post.
