Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Smithers has nearly 45km/28mi of trails for classic and skate skiiing that are meticulously groomed by the Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre.
Over the years, the trail system has been built and maintained, and continues to expand, under the care of volunteers from the popular Bulkley Valley Cross Country Ski Club, which runs the Centre.
The BV Nordic Centre trails circle through rich spruce and pine forest only a 10-minute drive from downtown. The main facilities – a two-storey heated lodge and waxing hut – are located eight kilometers from town, up Hudson Bay Mountain Road. A highly visible sign marks the turnoff and skiers can park in a lower lot or upper lot, depending on which trails they plan to ski.
Smithers' Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre has more members per capita than any other club of its kind in BC. Almost 700 Smithers residents – more than 11% of the town's total population – are members, indicating the popularity of the sport and the quality of the trails and snow conditions in the area.
