You are XC skiing over pristine, groomed trails, with small hills, valleys and our private lake on 4 loops, including some advanced hills on the furthest loop. We off approx 17 kms of groomed trails in the Boreal forest of Northern Alberta. Leave from your own room door at Hamilton House Inn. There are 16 pair of skis and boots for rent, fitting almost everyone. We also offer 5 sets of snowshoes to make your own trail into the wilderness. Clean, crisp air with deep forest trails or wide open spaces, sunrises or sunsets can lead the way, or the northern lights waiting for you, on a night ski (headlamp provided) out on the lake bed. We see moose, deer, occasional coyote or lynx and/or their tracks and many birds on each trip.
