Cross-Country Skiing Winter Outdoor Activities

Savor the pure Canadian air as you glide along a dazzling white trail in the winter sunshine. Breathe in the fragrance of the evergreens and wonder what animals made the fresh sets of tracks crossing your path. The only sounds are the swish of your skis and the occasional birdsong. Learn to ski at Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, the home of Canada's national cross-country and biathlon ski teams. Or follow your own path on hundreds of trails, front and backcountry, throughout the province.

When the weather is wintry, there are many interesting activities to choose in the Slave Lake Region during the cold months - even if you don't have your own ice fishing shack or your own snowshoes!
