1/4 down limestone not frozen

Hello, wondering if any of you know what yard around city may have a pile of 1/4 down crushed rock for sale not frozen?
I dont need much but am buying a new hottub and when moved old one off the other day want to re-level before I put the new one in position.
Its out in Lac du Bonnet but sounds like most yards out there are frozen solid(had the father in-law call as he lives out there)
I was hoping I could stop out somewhere in North/West side of winnipeg on my way out there but thought I would ask you guys before I call every place in phone book asking.
Thanks.
I do have a stock pile of my own out there but it is frozen stuff! Tried a 5 foot bar and barely made a dent.

get a tarp insulated if you can and put a diesel/karosine blower heater on it.

Four hrs of that should do it. that's what we do with sand piles

if you really don't need much and want to take the easy route.... places like Home Depot sell various types of sand and stone. Stored indoors and bagged so will be dry so wouldn't be frozen.

Yea saw some online but dosnt show quantity so guess maybe need to call Home Depot. Im out of town right now so cant stop in.
Did call the closest landscape place near my house in city and their pile is frozen but do have some bags forsale. Roughly 5gallon pail size for $7.xx I think. I believe a half yard would be $150 or so but guess thats what happens when your in a pinch.
Thanks.

Anseeuw bros on the south west corner of the perimeter will have 1/4” down loose that you can buy bulk. If need be they will just dig into their pile and find loose stuff.
