New for 2018-2019:
Skiing at Birch is back! The new Ski Birch club has recently acquired used grooming equipment. The club is fundraising to make the operation of the ski trails sustainable for the long-term, and we need your support. You can support the return of the trails through either skiing at Birch, buying a membership, making a donation, or spreading the word that Birch is back!
You can buy a membership and/or make a donation here.
Membership benefits include unlimited skiing at Birch and access to the chalet on week days — $40 for a regular membership / $80 for a founding membership.
Please note: We are still learning some new things about grooming, so you may find the trails not quite at the level of excellence you have previously enjoyed under the former groomer at Birch!
The new club would like to thank the Birch Mountain Sports club for their amazing love and maintenance of the trails for many, many years. The new club plans to work very hard to try to continue that love.
See you out at Birch!!

Groomed at Birch today. Overall, conditions are good, though there was quite a bit of drifting at the end of Fern Gully (skate portion is a bit messy) and just after Mt Neverest (snowmobile packed but not groomed). Plumbing is still not functional in the Chalet, so plan accordingly.
Birch has improved their grooming to another level. The classic tracks are, indeed, excellent and the skate looked very good. No snow in the tracks so come out soon and enjoy. Saw several skiers as well as a couple of families enjoying their ski. Lots of snow in this area.
After grooming today: skate’s good, classic’s great! If you were on the fence about whether or not to check out Birch, do it this weekend!
Thanks for the ski yesterday Birch! Trails are in great shape – keep up the good work! The kids loved the hills! Beautiful area. Having the space in the chalet for kids to change, chill (bring a board game!), snack, etc., is really great for families! We’ll be joining as founding members to support “Birch is back”!
Thanks to everyone who was out for the Birch Kids Day today!. Tomorrow, for everyone not out at the Manitoba Loppet, come on out to Birch for the ‘Birch is Back’ Ski Tour. The 5K south trails will be great, the chalet warm, and the soup and chocolate hot!!
After not having a ski season at Birch last year I was reminded today how special and fun these trails really are. The classic tracks were in very good condition and the hills are wonderful. Snow was falling as I was leaving so fresh grooming will be needed. Sure, there are less trails groomed than in past years but I’m sure you won’t mind…[Read more]
Hey everyone – Ski Birch is back!!!
The south trails (2.5K and 5k) have been groomed for skate and classic.
We are a completely new club and we are using some quite experienced grooming equipment so trails are not quite at the previous level of excellence of the previous groomers / grooming equipment.
Trail fees are $5 per individual and $10…[Read more]
