Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing: Know Before You Go

Strathcona Wilderness Centre updates

  • Feb. 26, 2021: The recent fluctuation in temperatures has induced a significant transformation of snow conditions; the fresh snow and a full renovation will improve conditions considerably. We will be grooming and resetting Friday evening and Sunday morning; please watch for grooming equipment and give our groomers time and trail to work – please stay off the trails as they are being groomed.
  • Equipment rentals are now available. In order to provide a safe and efficient service, up to 6 guests will be allowed in the ski rental room at one time. This includes picking up and returning equipment. Print and complete your rental waiver or minor rental waiver form in advance.

Please remember: leave your pet at home, dogs are not permitted at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre. Thank you for your cooperation.
