Multi-Use Trail System
The Multi-Use Trail System was added November 2018 for snowshoers, back country skiers and fat biking and provide s unique experience for non nordic users to enjoy the outdoors during the winter months. Trail head signs have been posted, the mapping (on Trailforks) is up to date, and new trail navigation markers are in place. See the new North multi use trail map and South multi use trail map. Dogs are permitted on the NORTH multi use trails if accompanying snowshoers, back county skiers or fat bikes - sorry no pedestrian users during the winter. See our Fat Bike page for further information.

Inclement Weather: Please check on Facebook if there is inclement weather. The lodge is generally closed early if the roads are bad due to freezing rain or heavy rain. Each program informs the participants what their cut off temperature is. For example the Chicks program uses a cut off of -25 C. On evenings that the temperature is -30 by 5 pm the lodge is closed early. These guidelines have been developed based on the number of skiers that come out, and to ensure the safety of WNSC staff and volunteers. As always the trails are open 24/7.
