Well, we have about 8 inches of snow. Great start to the skiing season.

We have been doing some work on the shelters and a little bit on the trails. The work on the trails is mostly fixing signs and maps that have been vandalized.

The work on the shelters includes: Pine on the interior of Moose Lake, New paneling on exterior of Moose. ( We will be painting it in the spring ) Fixed door at ski hill. Cut windows in bathrooms at Moose and Ski hill. We are going to get solar lighting installed in Jack Rabbit, Rundle and Tamarack.

The park removed trees and mowed trails in early October.

 Over the summer and fall hikers have been using the shelters. I would ask that they pack out everything that they bring in.Garbage doesn't keep well at 32 degrees  C above

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.

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!

I would ask skiers to please move over to the side of the tracks if you have to herring bone up a hill. Skiers travel both directions on the trails. The ones going the opposite direction that you are would like those tracks to go down the hill you just climbe
