Burwalde Woods is the main facility used by the Boundary Trails Nordic Club, including the Jackrabbits. There are trails for both classic and skate skiing. Club membership fees support the operation and maintenance of these trails. Burwalde Trails is located between Morden and Winkler, three miles north of Hwy 14 or nine miles south of Hwy 23.
