The Dead Ox Trailblazers is made up of outdoor enthusiasts from the east side of the Riding Mountain National Park area. Some of us ski the trails in RMNP all week.
We also have set tracks at the McCreary Golf & Country Club located just outside the park on the Agassiz road (follow the highway signs on #5 to Mount Agassiz). The clubhouse is beautiful and open between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM every Sunday to warm up and meet friends. We have 3K of single track with several loops to ski on the golf course. We have a good supply of ski equipment for use by club members. The golf course provides good access to the Oak Ridge Trail in RMNP. Stop in to warm up before or after your ski.
Trails will be groomed and track set again tomorrow March 12th. We track Oak Ridge, Scott Creek and Lower Bald Hill on the east side of RMNP. Parks Canada is keeping the road #19 from Wasagaming area plowed and sanded this winter so don’t be afraid to drive to our side of the park for some great ski conditions.

Oak Ridge Trail (rated Blue) and Lower Bald Hill trail (rated Green) are groomed and track set. Both trails are in excellent condition after our first real taste of winter. Sort of instant winter here on the eats side of RMNP with up to 55 cm of snow. You can easily do both these trails as a day trip from Wasagaming, Neepawa and Dauphin area. .
