PotashCorp Wintershines 2012 - Celebrating Our Cool Culture

Published: Jan 25, 2012

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Changes to PotashCorp WinterShines Agenda

Due to late snow fall and site challenges that were not able to be overcome for 2012, PotashCorp WinterShines will not be building an Ice Climbing Wall, Zip Line or Luge as previously advertised. In its place, there will be a portable 32’ climbing wall, Ice Castle, Giant Slide and ice bonfire which will be lit on Saturday, February 4th in the evening.

Also, further updates to the Opening Program include the newly added International Ice Fight between Canada and Japan. Come and watch as two professional ice carvers go head to head in the battle for the International title at PotashCorp WinterShines in Saskatoon.
