Edmonton Ski Trails

Post by TBear » Tue Sep 23, 2014 6:14 pm

Are there any Edmonton xc skiers out there? What is your favourite trail? I see lots of people skiing the Victoria Golf Course every year but I have yet to try it myself. This website shows some places to ski and where to rent: http://sweb1.dmit.nait.ca/~tbloor1/Edmo ... ry-Skiing/. Now where should I start?

The only times I've been skiing near Edmonton have been Christmas/New
Years when I am visiting family near Lacomb. My favourite is Cooking
Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Park about 40 km east. I usually start at the
Islet Lake staging area at the east end but Waskahegan is closer to

The Canadian Birkebeiner is held on these trails in mid February.
