Cross Country Ski Trails in Coronation Park

Did you know that the Community League worked with the City to design and create cross country skiing trails in Coronation Park?

 

Our cross country ski trails are beginning to take shape, starting with 3 different loops around Coronation Park with hopefully a few more to come. It's been a late start, acquiring equipment, permits and volunteers, but it’s impressive what we have been able to do in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, we will not have tracks set this year unless the snow stays for sometime but you can also lay down a skier set track. We have 3 volunteers from neighbouring communities who are offering their services and snowmobiles to the cause. If you or someone you know has a snowmobile or quad and wants to volunteer for the grooming crew, please get in touch with Dave Kenny at 780-530-8575. 

 

Check out our website or Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for other possible activities through the winter!
