where to snow shoe and cross country ski in Edmonton

Presented by Boiron

It’s going to be a great winter to get out and enjoy the snow! Using Boiron Winter Essentials can help you make the most of the winter season. Stock up on Oscillococcinum for treatment of flu-like symptoms, Stodal for coughs and Coryazlia for cold symptoms, and don’t let anything stop you. Keep our snow shoe and cross country ski guide handy for reference, and have a great winter this year!

Whether you are snowshoeing or getting on the Nordic ski trails crisscrossing our fair region, there are a ton of places for you to have fun! While it’s true you can pretty much snowshoe where ever you find an expanse of snow (the less packed, the better!) cross country skiing or nordic skiing is best experienced on a groomed trail. Most of the cross country trails in Edmonton are groomed by the City River Valley Operations and by the Edmonton Nordic Club.

In our handy guide, we’ve listed where to snow shoe and cross country ski in Edmonton, plus the most important thing (if you ask me!)….is there a bathroom? If you have a favourite trail, particularly outside of the metro area, we’d love to add it, please let us know in the comments! Happy trails!
