Windsor Park Nordic Centre is maintained and operated by the Cross Country Ski Association of Manitoba (CCSAM) since 2000.
Trails are groomed daily, in the mornings, unless conditions dictate otherwise.
Please allow several hours after a significant snowfall for trails to be groomed and the tracks to “set up”. Expect trails to close temporarily while grooming is in process.

Had a lovey skate ski last night with friends. Snow conditions are holding up well! I’d rank the trails I skied on (a little bit of everywhere) as excellent to ok. Some lights need fixing so there’s a few more dark areas than usual.
Windsor Park Nordic Centre, Saturday morning, -6°.
– Many skiers. Great to see so many kids (and parents) in Red River Nordic’s numerous Jackrabbits groups.
– A+ skate track, given the amount of snow that we’ve received. I’m glad I used rock skis. Otherwise, you’ll need to be aware to avoid potential gravel in a number of places, and/or you might…[Read more]
Ski Season at Windsor Park officially starts tomorrow – Saturday December 1st!
We can hardly believe it. It didn’t seem that enough snow had fallen earlier this week but Jim the Groomer says we’re good to go. Thin in spots but WE CAN SKI!
Some of us are out breath tonight, busy shovelling some of the thin areas, and the river crossings.…[Read more]
From Steve Scoles:
Went crust skiing at Windsor Park on Tuesday evening. The crust is not so good in most places, but found a few spots along treed areas that were fun. The St Boniface Golf Course had a few spots that were good. But in general, you have to find the spots and will find most spots breaking through. Also lots of very hard icy areas.…[Read more]
Conditions are great and we are only open till Wednesday! Come join us for a last ski of the season!
I skate skied on Sunday from 10:30 to 1:30, -1° to +1°, cloudy. A+ track. With a very light wind, it was fantastic spring skiing.
The classic track generally looked good, but it was very shallow in a number of places, with no snow at all for a foot or so in some places.
Opportunity this weekend for a significant blast of snow if things move right… will there be any grooming at all with the clubhouse closed if we get hit.. or is it done regardless of snow fall?
I received the following report from a friend on Thursday afternoon:
Don’t put your skis away yet! Windsor Park has excellent skiing conditions. As you know, they have plenty of snow and they are still grooming, so the conditions are ideal. Based on the long-term forecast it appears that we will have good conditions for a while yet.
What with a g…[Read more]
Sorry folks, somehow the weekend trail reports didn’t get published here. Jim’s been busy with this new snow (finally!). Things are looking great. Of course some areas will be windblown. Jim will be hard at it again after tomorrow’s snow/wind storm!
Thursday evening, -5°.
Skate: Icy fast. Nowhere near the iciest track I’ve skied on, but balance was a challenge, although very stiff skis helped. My ski bases may have one or two new very minor scratches. A few degrees milder and it’ll be a very nice track. A few degrees colder and no thanks.
Classic: Icy fast. Very well defined tracks. A 0° to +…[Read more]
