If you want to get away from the snow, you don’t actually have to buy a plane ticket, you could just head to southwest Saskatchewan.

While most of central and southeast Saskatchewan still buried under several feet of snow people are already golfing in Maple Creek.

Barry Rudd is the mayor of the province’s southwest hotspot, and he confirms all of their snow is already gone. The temperatures have even hit 10 C in the past few days.

The southwest town was hit hard by flooding in 2010, but Rudd says they're not too worried about it this year.

“We’ve done flood prevention measures and built a dyke and cleaned the creek and all that kind of stuff, we have one phase left that we want to do in the long term but we feel that we’re protected,” he commented.

He says the only concern the area might have is if there were a breach at the ‘Junction’ reservoir.
