Glide the day away.

The Mount Macpherson trail system boasts 30 kms of groomed trails for both skate and classic skiing. If you've still got energy in the evening, try out the 6 km of lit trail until 9pm, or tackle the trails by the light of a head lamp. Grooming usually starts in late November and ends in late March or early April. Trails are groomed daily if possible. There is a dog friendly loop to enjoy with your furry friends. A truly quintessential experience is heading to the Ole Sandberg cabin in the evening for a beverage by the fire.

The Revelstoke Nordic trails are managed and maintained by the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club. Daily trail fees can be purchased from the ticket office located in the lodge from 9:00am – 4:00pm daily.  Please pay trail fees into the fee vault (yellow metal box outside the lodge near information boards) using the fee envelopes provided.

On weekends, you can catch the Revelstoke Resort Shuttle to the trails for just $4 per ride. Jump on at any shuttle stop between Revelstoke Mountain Resort, downtown and the trail system at Mount Macpherson. View the schedule and map here.

Begin at the beautiful Mount Macpherson Nordic Lodge and follow the Mickey Olsen Loop. Connect with Evelyn's Choice and Dynamite for a fun and approachable ski.


The popular 5 km dog loop is a great choice for intermediate skiers. Your pup is welcome to join you, but please make sure to clean up after them and keep them in control! If you don't have your furry companion with you, the Main Loop is also a great ski on either classic or skate.


Ski the Main Loop to Log Roller and follow it all the way to the infamous "Hydro Hill", then tuck and pray as you descend Hydro Hill to the Beaver Lake Road and make your way back on Cedar Ramble and BCIT. Check our event listings if you're a keen nordic skier; the Revelstoke Nordic Club offers Headlamp Heroes, a Wednesday race series, throughout the winter.
