The Duck Lake Ski Club maintains an 11K trail system that starts across the street from the hospital in Pine Falls. It is well-maintained with beautiful rolling scenery and goes through a variety of boreal mixed wood forest, balsam fir forest, lowland black spruce forest, black spruce/ tamarack bog, meadow, and black ash trees. It’s gently rolling terrain with one major climb and no steep downhills. There’s a charming warming hut (Doyle-Pitre Chalet) along the trail.
The trails are regularly groomed. The club purchased a new groomer in February 2020.

Trails are in good to very good shape with ample snow cover. Always enjoyable.

The Entrance Hills and Sunshine Hills are closed off for the season, but the Chalet Hills were g…[Read more]
Excellent, deep, fresh classic tracks at Pine Falls / Duck Lake today! All the trails are nicely groomed, including all our favourite hilly side trails (Entrance Hills, Chalet Hills, Chalet Loop, Sunshine Hills) that branch off the main, central, flatter loops. The packing on the hill ascents is particularly fantastic: firm enough to fully trust…[Read more]
Gorgeous grooming on the 24th made for a great Xmas Day ski today! Lots of glide and ample snow coverage… just saw one rock peeking out that was easy to avoid. Note that while all the central trails are nicely groomed, the hilly side trails are not yet prepared. If you like a gentle terrain ski, Duck Lake is ready for you; but if you’re exc…[Read more]
