7K of rolling skating and classic trail on the Pinawa Golf Course, 40K of classic trails in Canadian Shield forest, and a 1.2K lighted trail.
The Pinawa Club is open year round as a licensed restaurant and lounge. Skiers are welcome to use this facility. Food or beverages, not purchased in the Pinawa Club, are not permitted in the building (please save your bag lunches and thermoses for the trail). The Pinawa Club is home for many member and non-member activities – curling, bingo & club lunches to name a few. If your group is large please contact the Manager (204) 753-2294 prior to arrival to ensure that the facility can accommodate your party. It is important to the CCSAM and the Whiteshell Ski Club that all skiers respect Pinawa Club staff & members and comply with the rules and regulations. Maintaining our good relations will ensure the building remains available to us for special events such as the annual Manitoba Loppet.
The Whiteshell Ski Club maintains warming huts located on the Red, Orange and English River Trails. Skiers may use them at their own discretion. The Club charges no fees, takes no bookings, and assumes no responsibility for the safety and well-being of the users. Users should be self-sufficient and be prepared to handle any eventuality (for example, lack of firewood, injuries, accidents, poor signal strength for cell phones, and the possibility of sharing the premises with others.) Donations help our non-profit, volunteer group to cover the cost of maintaining the trail network and the warming huts. For assistance in an emergency, call 911.

Skied the blue, green and red loops today. The JGG Freeway has not been groomed yet this year, alas. Red is excellent (for classic — sorry skate skiers); the others decent. Doesn’t look like blue / green has been regroomed since some snowshoers, walkers and huge wolves have been by, but enough skiers have gone through to have smoothed things out…[Read more]

Classic: The Red trail and the Golf Course trail had excellent tracks.
Skate: The track on the Red trail and the Golf Course trail was perfectly firm. However, the groomer’s placement of the classic track was almost always too far from the edge of the trail — sometimes as f…[Read more]
Skied Monday, Golf course is tracked as well as the red. The blue and green had been tracked also but people on snowshoes walked right over the fresh tracks and filled them in. The orange going up was snowshoe ruined and the return has not been tracked just skier skied in.
