The Beaver Glen Cross country ski trail has been re-routed for the 2018/19 winter season due to construction in the Beaver Glen Campground. Please visit the Important Bulletins page for details.
Visitors will be able to enjoy several groomed ski trails this winter, thanks to volunteers of the Waskesiu Lake Ski Club. The remaining trails are not groomed or cleared of fallen trees and are tracked by users. You can borrow skis, snowshoes and children's chariots with cross-country ski kits from the Hawood Inn in Waskesiu.
Red Deer and Fisher are popular trails that start in Waskesiu townsite. For more adventure, try skiing to Crean Lake or leave your vehicle at one of the trailhead parking lots and tour the backcountry. Pack a lunch, remember your safety equipment and make a day of it!
Good neighbours are great to have! Thanks to a new partnership, Prince Albert National Park is now connected to the Great Blue Heron Provincial Park cross-country ski trail network. The Spruce River Highlands Trail is machine packed for use by skiers and snowshoers. A 1-km spur connects Spruce River Highlands Trail to 18km of ski trails in the Anglin Lake area. The Great Blue Heron Provincial Park trail network includes two warm-up shelters.
Visit the Waskesiu Lake Ski Club for updates on current ski trail conditions.
Please keep dogs on a leash.
