Hecla Island is the hub of activity in this year-round natural playground. Leaving Winnipeg, follow PTH 8 for 165 km north along the west shore of Lake Winnipeg to Gull Harbour.
Hecla has 26K of classic trails and 5K of skate trails.
Trail Conditions reported by Manitoba Parks.
See below for reports submitted by skiers.
Looking for some fresh snow? Journey to Hecla where there is much more snow than Winnipeg and the trails were freshly groomed on Wednesday. The result is good to very good tracks. Watch for the 2 owls near the park entrance and bald eagles flying overhead.
We enjoyed hours of classic skiing today on well tracked trails. The more shaded West Quarry trail was still skiable in mid afternoon, but has debris. The open sections of the Hamars Lake trail were cleaner but the snow was softer. Start early.
