All the trails are well groomed. Being in a mountain area there are some black diamond trails, lots of uphill and quick downhills.

Just a short jaunt from Crowsnest Pass is this fabulous network of trails with every skill set represented. Beginners and more intermediate level skiers will enjoy what the area has to offer. Lovely views of Mount Tecumseh and Crowsnest Mountain visible above Chinook Lake are afforded through the trees and at several viewpoints. Events throughout the ski season are hosted... More

This area is nestled in Canada's picturesque Rocky Mountains. To the south is Waterton Lakes (Alberta) and Glacier (Montana) national parks. To the north is Kananaskis and Banff National Park. So you can probably imagine what this area is like.

There is quite the variety of trails at this location! I am not a very good Cross Country Skier, but I had a great time. There was an understandable map, the trails were clearly marked, and will definitely be returning. Like most cross country areas I have been to, make sure you use the facilities before you start as there... More

This trail was beautiful and well-groomed during our visit in early November. There was ample parking, excellent guide maps along the way and a beautiful view to enjoy throughout the hike. Family-friendly, moderately easy hike!

Even on a long weekend it wasn't really busy. The snow is not as good as Waterton but better than anywhere else in the pass. And it is in a sheltered area so you aren't blown away by the crazy winds through the pass. Great views of Crowsnest Mountain and trail maps clearly marked throughout the trail system. There is...
