Our ski club has existed for 61 years under various names and at various locations with our current site growing from 8.2 hectares in 1985 to 312 hectares in 2019. The latest expansion was a 167-hectare addition and we are now looking at options for new trail development. With historical roots in mind, we are considering addition of a 15 km trail system that is more rustic than the current CNSC trails, and more similar to those we skied on at Tabor Mountain.
You may have noticed the pipes and heavy equipment on site. We are excited to move onto the second stage of snowmaking system that will ensure snow. See the news story on CKPGToday.ca
This project is made possible by the legacy fund from the 2018 Para Nordic World Championships, Northern Development Initiative Trust Fund, and donation of equipment by Brandt Tractors and PRD Construction.
Thank you PG!
We've done assessments on the singletrack trails and we're ready to roll. A group of volunteers has started buffing the trails, and we're clearing downed trees. There are still a few wet spots to be found, especially in the upper trails like Java and Crosscut, please avoid these for now. You may come across some trees on trails that haven't been cleared yet, so ride with caution.
If you'd like to help with cleaning up the trails this spring, or would like to report an issue on a trail, please contact Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise check the status of the trails on Trailforks.
Thanks again for your help in keeping off the trails while they were wet!
We ask that visitors wear a mask for the health and safety of our office staff - thank you!
Open Monday to Friday from 10 am - 2 pm
* Closed on Statutory Holidays
The wide ski trails and single track trails are now open to hikers.
Dogs are now welcome on all trails. Please clean up after your dog and only have them off leash if they can respond to verbal cues.
Do your part and keep a minimum of 2 meters distance from others. Did you know that under exertion we expel air with more force and thus our perimeter needs to be larger than the standard 2 meters! The recommended distance under low exertion is 4-5 meters, medium exertion is 10 meters, and hard exertion is 20 meters.
The Caledonia Nordic Ski Club (CNSC) is operated as a not-for-profit. Located minutes west of Prince George BC, the facility includes 55km of groomed trails, night skiing, dog friendly trails and numerous snowshoe trails. The large, comfortable day lodge has heated washrooms, a wax room, kitchen, ski school, and equipment rentals. CNSC is also home to a world class biathlon facility and a cross country technical building. These facilities allow for the hosting of local events up to national level races including the 2015 Canada Winter Games and the 2019 World Para Nordic Ski Championships. Our program participation numbers and membership base are some of the highest in the country. Run by a dedicated volunteer board of directors, enthusiastic staff members and a huge volunteer base, Caledonia Nordic Ski Club welcomes you to our world class facility.
The ski season typically starts the beginning of December and ends in April. In the summer season, the lodge is closed, but the ski and snowshoe trails remain open for hiking and biking. Please note that all summer activity is done at the user's own risk.
See you on the trails!
We enjoyed the dog trails very much!! Our two hours was up way too quickly. Thank you for a fun Sunday afternoon.
