In the Kootenay Rockies region, stay at a ski-in/ski-out lodge or enjoy cross-country skiing at downhill ski resorts such as Kicking Horse Mountain Resort or Fernie Alpine Resort.

There are also well-used club trails with warming huts and night-skiing. Golden, Kimberley, Castlegar and Rossland are a short drive away from groomed Nordic routes, and have produced champion cross-country skiers, such as Olympians George Grey (Rossland) and Sara Renner (Golden).

Cross-Country Skiing near Rossland and Castlegar

At Black Jack Cross-Country Club (Rossland), explore trails that meander through forests and across frozen lakes. At night, glide under the stars on a lit trail or take the Le Petit Fromage tour for skiing and fondue dinner.

The Paulson Cross-Country Ski Trails (Castlegar) have 45km/30mi of trails and three shelters. Beginners and families: try the Mud Lake to Ben Shaw cabin circle route. Adjacent Nancy Greene Provincial Park features ungroomed trails.
