The Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club maintains classic ski trails in the Agassiz Provincial Forest. The 10K trail system has gentle inclines and winds through rolling gravel ridges, mature and plantation forest, and surrounded by spruce bogs and the occasional poplar bluff.
Logging of the Blue and Red trails started in fall 2020, so those trails no longer exist. A new Yellow trail connects from the Green trail on the west side of Pit Road and goes south out-and-back. A new trail map has been posted.
The trails are groomed by Carl Nilsson.
The trailhead is located on the south side of PTH 317, 15 km west of Lac du Bonnet or 34 km east of the junction of PTH 59 & PTH 317 (or 80 km NE of the Perimeter Hwy & PTH 59). There is no signage on PTH 317, but the parking lot can be seen from the highway. There is a trail map at the PTH 317 trailhead, and all trails have excellent signage.
There is also a port-a-potty at the PTH 317 trailhead.
Please support the maintenance and grooming of these trails by sending a donation / trail fee to:

Sunday Afternoon January 31: Plenty of happy skiers and dogs out enjoying the beautiful weather and fresh soft new snow. The mild temps. and soft snow make the downhills and curves easy to work, being more forgiving and allowing for error. The tracks, though not firm or super fast, gave the nice feeling of almost floating on skis. Only the…[Read more]
Thank you to Carl and Karen with Lac du Bonnet Ski Club, who we met on the trails on Boxing Day, for getting the grooming done. We had a fantastic ski in Agassiz Provincial Forest. It is packed and tracked and in fine condition. Unfortunately, a snowmobile wrecked a small but significant enough portion of the yellow trail sometime in between…[Read more]

We are planning to have the trails ready for December 26th.
