Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing


Trails CLOSED for skiing.

The winter that never was…
Despite some late March attempts at redemption, the 2015-2016 cross country ski season at SWC has melted out.

Our trails are now in transition – with most of the snow gone, there are only a few icy remnants of what really never amounted to much in terms of snow coverage this season.

If you are coming out to seek emerging signs of spring, watch for wet and muddy sections; also keep an eye out for our resident moose, as they are actively seeking trailside snacks at this time.

Call 780-922-3939 for the latest trail conditions.
