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.
On Wednesday, 8 members of Nature Manitoba’s Grey Hares and/or Charleswood Ski Club classic skied the Whiteshell CC Ski Club’s trails in Pinawa: Red, Blue, and Golf Course. The tracks on Red and Blue were good to excellent. On the Golf Course trail, 90% of the track was somewhat to fully blown-in with abrasive new snow; it was a grunt. The skate…[Read more]
Friday, Feb 2. Red trail, classic and skate are in good shape. The orange trail, blue trail and green trail to both warm up huts and golf course have not been groomed since Tuesdays snow. But when i left at around 4 pm i did see fresh groomed tracks on the golf course.
On Sunday we arrived to find almost 2 inches of fresh snow covering the trails. We skied the Red trail several times as it was the only one that was track set. By the time we left the groomer had track set the Orange and Blue trail. We did not check out the golf course but conditions are looking good for the Manitoba Loppet set for next weekend.
I think Pinawa could take a lesson from other ski clubs. Arrived Saturday morning to find the golf course and red trails covered with about an inch or more of snow. Hard to see classic tracks in some spots.Skied the red trail once and was looking forward to doing a second lap after a tea break at warm up cabin on some skied in faster tracks.The…[Read more]
Golf course single track set with some skate track beside, good condition. Red Trail single track set with skate track beside, good condition. Note a couple of bare spots under trees but overall good condition. Blue, English River And Orange trails have been packed but need more snow to set track. – J Truman
I skied the Orange, Blue, J-G-G & English River trails over the last couple of days. None of these trails have been groomed but they had been packed about a week or so ago. With the fresh snow (5-10 cm), the conditions are fast and the hills are negotiable, mostly))). Scenery is exquisite, as always… Bring your rock rock skies though. I got some…[Read more]
