Copper and Selwyn's Loop
One of the most popular ski outings is to follow Copper to Crossroads then Wolf to Selwyn's Loop. Ski around Upper Selwyn's and Lower Selwyn's in either direction and return to Mount McIntyre Recreation Centre the same way you came or choose an alternate return on Whisky Jack or Coyote. (About 10km)
Copper and Valley Loop
For a longer outing follow Copper to Crossroads Junction, then take Lower Valley to Best Chance Corner. Return to Mount McIntyre Recreation Centre via Copper for an easier route, or climb the ridge and enjoy the long downhill run on Upper Valley then return on Dog or Copper. (About 14 km) Shorten the loop by using Valley Link and/or Jeff Link.
The Ski Stadium
The stadium is an excellent place for kids, novice skiers or anybody who wants to play or practice. It's accessible from the Canada Games Centre parking lot (Stadium Trailhead) or a quick ski from the Wax Room.
The Adventure Trail, beginning at the south end of the stadium, offers 100 meters of fun for young skiers with little bumps and dips, a bear cave, trapper's cabin, animal sightings, and so on. Look for the hand painted archways to start and finish the adventure.
The stadium is one big playground with the XC 1/2 pipe, playhill with jumps and hoops, Pingo, Tube, and Stadium Hill.
It's also a great place to practice skills on varied terrain. Practice your skating without going too far away. The lights are on until 9:30 on weeknights.
Sounds like fun doesn't it!
Some trails are marked with snowshoeing symbols, but all trails are open for snowshoeing. The mountain biking single track trails are excellent for snowshoeing. Snowshoers are requested to buy a day pass or club membership and to follow the same rules as skiers.
A recommended loop is over the bridge to Olympic Trail and Nighthawk to Rocky Canyon. For a short loop take Rocky Canyon to 7.5K and then return via the Interchange. For a longer loop, continue on Rocky Canyon and return on the new 'Upper' trail back to the beginning of Rocky Canyon. The loop is about 3 kilometers.
For a long adventure on snowshoes, try the Rocky Canyon, Fetish, Birch Trail loop. Refer to trail maps or ask at The Ski Base.
