There are over 35kms of trails for both classical and skate skiing, which includes the Weyerhaeuser Forest Trail. The club has the longest night skiing trail in Alberta - 4.5kms of lit trail. There is also a 5km out and back snowshoe trail. There are two trails for those that love to ski with their dogs.
