We predominantly ski at Assiniboine Park! You must “Follow” our website in order to receive updates/posts of where we are skiing each time. Our meeting venue is often at the Duck Pond Shelter. But when temperatures are very cold we often ski behind the Children’s Nature Garden, as well. Unless otherwise indicated on a post, the park is where we start skiing most Sundays.
The Assiniboine Park Conservancy operates the ski trails found within Assiniboine Park.
The blue coloured lines on this map show where some of the cross-country ski trails are being mechanically groomed in the winter. Still more are groomed behind the Children’s Nature Garden.
Jeff Hampshire of Nordic X Ventures does the mechanical grooming of all cross-country ski trails in Assiniboine Park. Look for Twitter tweets from “Nordic X-Ventures” (@NordicXventures) to see when the trails were last mechanically groomed.
Assiniboine Park Jackrabbit “Fast Rabbits” meet Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre.
The Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM) does the mechanical grooming of all cross-country ski trails at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.
ADDITIONAL SKI OUTINGS:
During the course of the ski season we may arrange to travel out of Winnipeg in order to experience the sport in various settings such as Falcon Ridge or Beaudry Park. There are many other beautiful ski trails located outside of Winnipeg and we encourage you to explore these trails at your leisure. The CCSAM website has excellent information on all ski trails in and out of the city. You may also contact the Coaches for their personal feedback on trails such as Shannondale, Burwalde Woods, Pumpkin Creek, Bittersweet, Grand Beach, Pinawa, etc.
