Snow Maze Opens This Weekend

A Maze in Corn

For the third winter in a row, A Maze in Corn north of St. Adolphe is unveiling its seasonal snow maze. The maze, which has become a hot local attraction since it made its debut in 2018, has been recognized as the world’s largest snow maze.

The maze will open on Sunday, February 14 at 1:00 p.m. Originally, the plan had been to open earlier in the week, but frigid temperatures forced the operators to push back the date.

Even still, Sunday is expected to have a daytime high somewhere in the range of -25 degrees, so the operators advise guests to only attend if they are able to come equipped with “the proper full winter gear.”

Temperatures should be much more moderate on Monday, Louis Riel Day, and the snow maze will be eager to greet visitors between 11:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m.

For the rest of the season, the maze will be open Thursday through Sunday. Admission is $15 per person for those 13 or older, and $13 for those between the ages of four and 12. Children three and under may enter free of charge.

Regular admission includes access to the snow maze as well as Snow Mountain. Luge rides are available for an additional charge.

In previous years, the site has included a bar and sleigh rides were offered, but the pandemic has forced those features to be shuttered this year.

Due to COVID, there are a few rules in place that everyone needs to follow.

In order to ensure that snow maze doesn’t exceed capacity, tickets can be purchased online (www.cornmaze.ca). Each ticket is good for a two-hour timeframe. If capacity isn’t reached, tickets may also be purchased at the gate—but the operators are encouraging people to order online to ensure they are able to access the site.

Groups are limited to five people, and masks must be worn at all times. The groups must also maintain at least two metres of distance between themselves and other groups.

An in-house rule is that groups should stick to the right while walking through the maze—in other words, the same thing you’d do while driving along a highway. The paths are eight feet wide and should provide plenty of space.

Unfortunately, the indoor warming area will be closed, although exceptions will be made for guests to use the washroom.
