Still time for Nordic skiing

 | April 13, 2012

Still feeling the itch to ski, even after the chairlifts have closed? Ready to switch up the possibility of an 8,000 vertical afternoon in favour of some cardio training?

Dig out the Nordic gear, then, and head to Sun Peaks’ cross country trails. The Vista, Great Grey, McGillivray Lake trails loop is accessible for cross country skiing.

The loop will be groomed occasionally until the first week of May, however the area will not be patrolled during this time, so skiers are urged to use caution, ski with a friend, and contact 911 in case of distress. Additionally, skiers are reminded that conditions are very hard in the early morning, so the best time to head out on the trails is after mid-morning when the snow has softened up.

There’s no charge for taking to the trails this month.
