GROOMING UPDATE  April 09: Trail report updates may be delayed due to later shift start overnight. The Heat/Cool cycle is happening and therefore conditions vary from icy and hard to soft and slushy, BUT.....We still have some great skiing at the Nordic Centre.  There will be limited grooming on the natural snow ski trails moving forward due to melting/thinning snow base. Have fun and please use caution when skiing as trail conditions are changing hourly. 

WINTER BIKING: Expect hard pack snow / icy conditions earlier in the day and as temperatures rise softer conditions will exist.

SNOWSHOEING/HIKING/RUNNING: A reminder that snowshoeing/hiking/running is prohibited on Groomed Ski Trails. 

DOGS: Dogs are NOT permitted on Ski Trails during winter. Dogs are only permitted on the Snowshoe loop & must be on leash.

SNOWMAKING: Snowmaking in the Frozen Thunder pit for 2021/22 is ongoing as temperatures permit. Please be aware there will be equipment traveling to and from area Monday to Friday to complete this work. 


Please wear a mask! Please do not enter the Day-lodge unless wearing a mask or face covering that covers both nose & mouth. Washrooms are also available in the XC Team Rooms & Biathlon Team Rooms buildings.

All CNCPP users are reminded to practice physical distancing (at least 2 meters). If you are experiencing symptoms, Do NOT visit.

Officers can issue fines for non-compliance of physical distancing and gatherings restrictions if required. Officers will also issue fines for littering. We ask for your cooperation to keep this site free of garbage. Improper disposal of garbage and waste has the potential to draw wildlife, and can force area closures. If you pack it in, pack it out!
