Nordic Opening – December 8th!

We are looking good to open Nordic for this weekend – December 8th!

The Nordic Centre will be open on Saturday & Sunday from 9am-4pm for cross-country ski, snowshoe and skate rentals!

With cold and clear conditions this week, we have been able to skidoo groom our Nordic trails around Strawberry Flats and South Gibson area. This is for classic cross-country skiing; there is no skate lane at this time. Watch for early season conditions, have fun and dress warmly! The conditions are cold and crisp. Trail tickets are at a discounted rate of $10/adult, $5/junior. 

Please note that snowshoeing is not permitted on the cross-country trails, but check out the other great snowshoe trails around Lightning Lake and beyond.

Ice skating rink: We are flooding the rink nightly and it is setting up beautifully with these subzero temperatures. We are expecting it to have a portion of it ready for this weekend.

The ski hill will not be open this weekend. We are looking for one more big snowstorm before we’re able to open it, but the forecast is looking pretty good for next week.

Stretch out those cross-country ski quads and see you on the trails this weekend!

Best Snowshoe Trips at Manning Park

Looking for an awesome, accessible, inexpensive outdoor activity this spring? Snowshoeing is the thing for you!

When it’s raining and variable weather at lower elevations, the conditions are still great for snowshoeing in Manning Park.

Snowshoe rentals are available from the Front Desk until the snow melts, and with lower season accommodation deals available, April is a great time to explore all the snowshoe trails that Manning Park offers.
