Advisories

GROOMING UPDATE Jan 22: Due to strong winds on Jan 20th, debris and fallen trees can be expected on trails. Many fallen trees were removed however, there may be a few more on trails that are not frequently used.  Please use caution and report any hazards to the CNC office. ALL natural snow trails have thin sections, please use caution in all areas.  Grooming natural snow trails will be limited due to low snow pack.   - A note to watch for equipment on trails between 9pm and 9am due to grooming operations.

Access to/from Meadowview via Centennial/Rundle or King of Sweden.

ICE - It's winter in Canada, parking lots and walkways are icy, please take care!

SNOWMAKING UPDATE: Olympic still in progress. No Access down from Meadowview via Olympic until the snow piles are pushed out. 

SNOWSHOEING - WINTER RUNNING/HIKING: A reminder that running/hiking and snowshoeing is only allowed on the designated snowshoe loop. Winter running/hiking is NOT AUTHORIZED on Groomed trails.

Dogs are NOT permitted on SKI TRAILS during winter. Dogs are permitted on the SNOWSHOE LOOP ONLY & must be on a leash - Thank you for your co-operation.
