Nordic Trails – New Updates!
Don’t let the rain fool you!
Whilst the past few days has seen some scattered showers and warmer temps in town, our Nordic trails here at Island Lake have remained in great condition. We are proud to say that 100% of our Trails are now completely groomed and accessible!
Please be aware that certain parts of our trails have become quite icy with the rapid thawing and freezing that has occurred in the past few days, and that others sections have seen some minor water damage. All in all however there is some great cross country skiing and snowshoeing to be done up here, and with cooler temps and more snow on the horizon it is set to only get better!
If you’ve never visited the Lodge in the winter before, consider joining us for lunch or a spa treatment…our restaurant and spa are open Thursday-Sunday every week until the end of March. If you’re thinking of skiing or snowshoeing up for a visit, be sure to call ahead to reserve a space in the dining room, as some dates are already full. Cat shuttles to and from the Lodge are also available; you can book ahead of time through our Reservations and Guest Services Team @ 250-423-3700.
If you’re planning on enjoying the beautiful scenery along our access road, please remember that first and foremost, it is our route for transportation of all staff and guests to and from the lodge. You should expect to encounter both snowmobile and snow-cat traffic while on the road; please yield to all oncoming traffic and stay to the side of the road wherever possible. We will keep you posted as and when we are able to open the trails that skirt that road, as well as the trails up and around the Lodge itself. We’d also like to kindly ask that you keep dogs leashed and clean up after them when making use of our property.
Above all else, enjoy the fresh snow and beautiful surroundings! We look forward to seeing you at Island Lake this winter!
