Cross-Country Skiing

A trail to discovery

Cross-country skiing is one of the best ways to get around and stay active in the winter. Step into a pair of classic skis and hit the trails. Ski clubs in various communities in the NWT groom beautiful networks of trails to have you gliding through your forest bathing needs. Don't forget, when all those lakes and rivers freeze up in the winter, it opens up limitless possibilities, opening up trails and passages that simply aren't available in the summer. It's truly an incredible means to experience our winter wonderland. And best of all, after a long day's ski (or even an hour's ski), you'll really feel like you earned a nice evening out on the town.
