The Whiteshell Cross Country Ski Club maintains 40K of classic ski trails in Canadian Shield forest and on the Pinawa Golf Course. 12K of those trails also have a skate ski track beside the classic track. 1.2K of the trails is lit.
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 Cross Country 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.

The skate track on Red looked very appealing, so I tried a few strides (on my classic skis) — beautifully flat and firm.
Fabulous classic ski on the Red trail today! With about an inch of sparkly new snow from yesterday, the skate deck looked soft, but a few classic skiers had skied ahead of us, making it the best ski of the season. Had a great chat with an interesting local fellow, and saw many deer. As usual, it was well worth the drive to Pinawa, and we are…[Read more]

Skiied the Red Trail this morning (everything but the DM loop). It was my first time there time and it’s a lovely, well marked trails system. I would avoid the extension loop, it’s packed down but untracked to the Red Cabin, either manually or groomed, so it was a bit of a slog. Rest of trail is tracked in most places, but they likely need more…[Read more]
