Cross country skiing on the River Trail is back for 2021 — parallel to the skating trail on the Assiniboine River (on the south side), and also on the Red River.
From The Forks Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/theforks) on January 30:
“The cross country ski trail runs from the Exchange District to The Forks on the Red River. It also runs on the Red River south from The Forks to Churchill. Additionally you can enjoy the ski trail on the Assiniboine River from The Forks to Hugo.”
The accompanying photo shows a single classic track trail.
Had a great ski today! Started at the rowing club, skied south on the Red for 3km (it goes to Osborne bridge now, at least). Then to the Forks, up the Assiniboine for a bit then south on the Red to Provencher bridge. Saw some crust skiing skate tracks on the Red (south of rowing club). Thumbs up all around!
