    Cranberry Portage die hard skiers have moved from the bush trails onto Lake Athapap for spring skiing.
    The North Lake Trail [access from Brydges Ave.N.W.] and South Lake Trail [access from Shoreline Rd.] are classic tracks that follow the shoreline and through the islands to the west. Fast trails and great views!

    The Cranberry Portage trails still have their 2 foot snow base but recent melting followed by freezing has created icy trail surfaces. The hilly Athapap North trail is temporarily closed until it is groomed following expected snow a week from now. The flatter Athapap South trail is icy and crusty. It’s skiable and at least you won’t be going fast…[Read more]

    The snow keeps coming – another 10-15 on Thurs. with more on its way! Al , the trail groomer, has been very busy and has fresh tracks on the trails for the weekend. Skiers will enjoy the snow in the trees and a smooth trail surface – even the notoriously uneven Athapap North trail. Summer trail damage [I’m on your wavelength Chris from Sandilands]…[Read more]

    From Gary Wickens:
    The South trail in Cranberry Portage has a new classic track following yesterday’s snowfall. The North trail will be groomed on Sunday afternoon. Skiers are invited to hit the trails soon to experience the winter wonderland effect before wind blows the snow off the trees.

    Cranberry Portage trails are still skiable despite melting temperatures earlier this week. Once again it’s hold off on the Caution hills and the Yellow loop until more snow comes down to slow it down a bit.
    Great weekend for snowshoeing one of the 4 trails if you find the ski trails too slick.

    The Athapap North trail is less busy…[Read more]
