Come experience some of the best cross country ski trails in BC.
The Mount Macpherson trail system is home to 26 kilometers of trails – groomed for both classic and skate, including 6km of lit trails for night skiing. The trailhead is 7km south of Revelstoke on Hwy 23..
The Revelstoke Nordic Skiing Club can trace its roots back to 1891. Today, the club is a registered non-profit organization. Almost all of the services provided by the club are accomplished by the hundreds of volunteer hours put in by its members. In 2018-19, the club expanded the parking area, added capacity for larger XC events and added 4.5km of brand new trails- including both challenging and easier new routes.
There is a day fee to use the trails. Take a morning group or private lesson with the in-house Nordic coach to hone your skills and learn new techniques. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book. Rentals are available at the Nordic lodge (free for youth under 16), and offered at various local Nordic retailers downtown.
Grab your pup and head for a quick lap around our popular dog loop (approximately 5k total). This route heads along BCIT and Roadway Ramble. Although this is considered an off-leash area, dogs must be under control at all times and owners must pick up after their pet! Put your dog back in your vehicle, and try out the perimeter loop: clockwise beginning with Mickey’s Loop, Main Loop, Loggers Lane, and Hydro Way, making your way back via Beaver Lake, Easy Al’s, and Roadway Ramble.
For a more challenging ski, show up after dark and ski six kilometers of lit trails. If that’s not enough action, put on a headlamp and throw a picnic dinner in your backpack and head up to the Ole Sandberg cabin, via the main loop. If a serious workout is what you’re craving, add “Hydro Hill” into the mix. Looking for some healthy competition? The Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club presents Headlamp Heroes, a Wednesday night race series. Check the Revelstoke Nordic website for race dates.
