Cross Country Skiing
We have worked very hard to make our trails some of the best cross-country skiing you’ll experience in Central Canada. People who ski our trails provide us with feedback like:
“Challenging, well thought out and immaculately groomed trails. Long hard climbs, long sweeping down hills but all very skiable. A kind ... Read More »
Due to the poor conditions of the back trails, the Frank Symonds Classic will have to be postponed until conditions improve.
Our groomers have been hard at work and the front trails are in good condition. Although no snow in the immediate forecast, it looks to be a beautiful weekend to come out and ski our front trails (Frank Symonds, Jackrabbit, Mattoos, Two Towers).

Come join us in the Frank Symonds Classic, Sunday Feb 26th starting at noon.
This is a fun, casual family event where we ski almost the whole trail system. There are two options to participate in, the race group and the touring group. Both groups will start at 12:00 noon.
Racers must ski the whole system: Two Towers, Matoos, JackRabbit, Rainbow Ridge then left before confusion corner, back onto JackRabbit, right towards Red Fox, do the loop on the wetland, right onto Green Spruce, left on Waldy’s Way, around Ursula’s scream, onto Todd’s Traverse, then Panorama, then Ron’s Run, take the Green’s Hill bypass, across the swamp to the bottom of Big Red; up Big Red and finish in the stadium. In the spirit of Frank Symonds, racers should stay together until the bottom of Big Red and then the race is on. Winner is the first one back to the stadium and determined on the honour system by the racers themselves as there are no officials.
The touring group do the same course but wait at the corners for the group to catch up. Skiers who are not up to the whole thing can take the shortcuts or skip some of the loops.
This event is free for all participants, and fun costumes are encouraged.
