The Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club maintains classic ski trails in the Agassiz Provincial Forest. The trails have gentle inclines and wind through rolling gravel ridges, mature and plantation forest, and surrounded by spruce bogs and the occasional poplar bluff.
The Blue and Red trails were logged in fall 2020. Trail groomer Carl Nilsson tried to groom them in 2021-2022, but stumps and blown-in snow made that impractical, so for now, they are snowshoe trails.
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. (See the Maps tab, below.)
So there is now ~8K of trail, and a round trip ski of all the trails would be 9K to 10K, depending on your route through Orange and Green.
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.
