Whiteshell Provincial Park

  • Falcon Trails is in great shape for skate and classic. If you’re coming off of High Lake trail #5 (High Lake) has classic tracks, but #6 (Falcon South Shore) is just skate.

    Pine Point Rapids is in good shape. Lots of the usual footprints on the track, but still very skiable. As usual, the prize at the end of the trail is spectacular.

    A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group dated January 2 says: “Otter Falls, Whiteshell Provincial Park – ski trails NOT tracked but still beautiful and great for a slow ski.”

      Their website and maps show it as a ski trail.
      On AllTrails, a post on January 15 says: “Beautiful trail. Cross country skiing trails looked like they were recently groomed. …”
      And finally (definitive info), Manitoba Parks’ new Winter…[Read more]

  • From Andy Dwilow on Thursday afternoon:
    Classic skied the South Whiteshell trail this morning from West Hawk townsite to Trans Canada Hwy underpass. Beautifully groomed double track, however being the first one on last night’s 3 Inches of snow, grip on climbs was challenging. Sun came out and what a winter wonderland. Didn’t have time to go to Fal…[Read more]
