After a Temporary Spring we have moved into Second Winter. Lots of fresh snow has fallen, 20cm in some places. Chanse is working away out there, but you may find the trails a little snow covered with the little bit of snow we are going to be receiving today. Overall it will be a better day for classic since the trails will be a little soft. It is supposed to be a bit windy today so the open areas on the Back Red and Teals Tango may be drifted.

Fat Biking is CLOSED. It will take some time to work through all this fresh snow the next couple of days.

Challenge yourself to a day on the trails! Ski 30km on March 1st and get your picture posted on our wall of honour.

Start your day off right on March 7th and join us for a Sunrise Ski. We will open at 6:30, sunrise is 6:49. On this same day we will also be having a Birthday Party to celebrate our 30th birthday! And whats the best way to celebrate? With cake of course! Celebrate with us on March 7th.

March Madness is just around the corner! Starting February 29th take 20% off everything in the ProShop, select items will be 30% off.

For many years we have not had trail maps to hand out, trying to keep it green. While our network has lots of trail signage & maps, we have now gone one step further. Our trail map is now available on Avenza Maps. Download the app to know where you are at all times!

We would like to introduce a dog friendly ski trail! We have a flat 3km loop out in the front field, called Teal's Tango. All are welcome on this trail. It will be especially great for beginners. We have planted seedlings this past spring with the hope of transplanting them to this trail when they are big and strong. We are looking forward to this location being a great spot to get your dog out on the trails and for an easier learning location for new skiers!

A few rules to live by on Teal's Tango.

  • Dogs must be on leashes
  • No dogs in the building please
  • Pick up what your dogs leaves behind

These simple rules will help make the trail a success. 

Our conditions texting update program is back! We update the conditions page every morning, but sometimes things change throughout the day. With this program updates will come directly to you as a text. No app download required. Your phone number will not be shared. These updates are not to replace checking the conditions page, but to update you on changes throughout the day. Send your cell phone number to ski@highlandsnordic.ca
