SNOW REPORT

14-Dec-2018

Although there is snow up there, it’s wet and melting, so not great conditions for skiing. Snowshoeing would be fine. Plus, there is still vehicle access, so be mindful of traffic on the access road. The warming hut is open.

Welcome to Skmana Cross-Country Ski and Snowshoe Club

Our ski club offers 14 kms of track set classic ski trials and a generous offering of designated snow shoe trails. All are well marked and cover a very wide range of natural forest, lakes and streams. If you watch closely you may even encounter snowshoe hares, woodpeckers and grouse. With real luck you may come across our resident moose.  Families, social groups and individual skiers and snowshoe’s will all find the trails very user friendly. You won’t be disappointed!

The trails are located at Skmana Lakes Forestry Recreation Site and are managed by the club. A warming hut is provided as a social gathering place.
