The Gimli Cross Country Ski Club maintains 15Km of classic trails and 5Km of skate ski trails that wind through Camp Morton Provincial Park. 8km of classic trail is located on the East Side trail system with access off of PTH #222.
An additional 7km of Classic is located on the West side trail system. This runs along the 5km of well packed Skate trail. A 2km double tracked classic loop is also availble for the pleasure of those who enjoy a chit chat while they ski. The west side trail system is acessed by turning west off of PTH#222 on to Lake side Rd. Parking, warm up shelters, & trail maps are available at both trail heads.
Info about GCCSC, the trails, & current trail conditions are posted by the club weekly on their website.
