The Whitehorse Nordic Centre is operated by the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club and offers 85 kilometres of groomed trails for classic and skate skiing and snowshoeing. An additional 20 kilometres of un-groomed single track are available for snowshoeing and fat biking. The trails are open year round and are equally popular in summer for mountain biking, hiking, running and walking.

     The Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club offers over 85 kms of groomed first class trails.  These trails include all levels of trails from blue, beginner trails, to black, advanced trails.  These trails are groomed daily by our dedicated grooming staff and volunteers.  Trail conditions and a grooming report are posted daily online and in the waxroom. 

Our trail system is also available to snowshoers.  Fat bike trails are available for use from the parking lot at The Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club.  Skiing with dogs is also available on permitting trails.

     Our waxroom facility has many amenities including change rooms, showers and saunas.  There is a full waxing facility available for use by members and day users for grip and glide waxing.  The ski club also has a Pro Shop for ski equipment rentals, day pass purchases, waxing, ski servicing and repairs.

  • We are a no tracking club. Faster skiers should step around slower skiers when it it is safe to do so. A friendly greeting is also recommended.

  • Trails are two-way unless noted – use caution on hills and keep right.

  • Downhill skiers have the right of way.

  • Snowshoers should use the skate lane and avoid snowshoeing directly on the classic tracks. Please move to the right when approaching or being passed by a skater.

  • Please pack out all litter.

  • If walking is necessary, stay to one side and avoid walking on set tracks.

  • If you fall, move off the track and fill in any holes left behind so it is safe for the next skiers.

  • Keep to the right when meeting oncoming skiers. Skaters should step into tracks when possible to provide more room for oncoming skaters.

  • Where there is only one track, all skiers should keep to the right regardless of which side the track is on.

  • Keep clear of the track when not skiing. Stay well to the edge if re-waxing, chatting or resting. Don’t stop at the bottom of hills or on blind corners.

  • Be courteous and helpful to fellow skiers.

  • Always follow the proper direction on one-way trails. This includes snowshoers.

Before heading out...

  • Check the weather forecast and bring along proper clothing and equipment.

  • Sunlight can burn even on cold and cloudy days. Protect your skin and eyes from the sun and wind.

  • Know your route. You may want to get a trail map to keep with you.

  • Bring sufficient water with you to stay hydrated, and be on guard for signs of frostbite and hypothermia.

  • Understand the trail difficulty symbols to help you ski within your abilities.
