SNOWSHOEING

WELCOME TO NORDIC | Learn to walk (and run)

Explore the wilds of Strathcona Park as you meander through the snow-covered trees surrounder by rugged ice-capped mountains. The quiet serenity of the old-growth forests will do more for your well-being than a day at the spa.

Mt. Washington is rated as one of North America's top Nordic Centres. Perched on the edge of Strathcona Provincial Park, the Nordic Centre features Raven Lodge, a quintessential timber-framed ski lodge with full dining, retail and rental options. XC skiers are treated to unparalleled views along 55 km of machine groomed and classic XC trails.

Snowshoeing at Mt. Washington will transport you to a magical wonderland featuring 22km of meandering trails with stunning views. We also offer Fat Biking on specific snowshoe and cross-country ski trails (weather permitting), in addition to our new Fat Bike-specific trail "Marmot's Mess". All trail passes, rentals and maps are available at the Raven Lodge.
