They are available to use. Bikes are allowed. Most shelters have some pots and pans, plates, some cutlery. You can't melt snow to wash dishes, so you need to bring some water.

Ski Hill and Moose Lake shelter have room for 2 people to sleep comfortably.

Jack Rabbit maybe 3. There is room on floor. Jack Rabbit does not have cookware.

Rundle is the biggest. Sleeps 4 to 5

Tamarack sleeps about 4.

We are putting new solar lighting in Jack Rabbit, Rundle and Tamarack this spring.These systems will have the ability to charge phones and Ipads.

Trail etiquette

Posted on Sunday February 28th 2021

When you are skiing and another skier is coming towards you and they are coming downhill (even the slightest grade ) you should step out of the tracks.

When you are skiing alone and meet 2 or more skiers, you should step out of the tracks.

When you have to climb a hill and need to herringbone please move off the the tracks.

Cross-Country Ski Camping

Posted on Tuesday January 30th 2018

Would you like to get away from the hectic pace of today’s living for a few days and replace it with:

  • Breathing clean, fresh air and getting plenty of exercise

  • Viewing the beauty of a boreal forest in all its winter glory

  • Observing and interacting with the many birds and animals that live here in winter

  • Soaking up a little peace and solitude

  • Choosing to ski on trails that will challenge your skiing abilities

  • Adventure, who knows what is around the next bend!

    Then my friends may we suggest that you pack your favourite easy meals and head out to one of the following shelters for a day or two... and would you believe that all of this is for FREE!
