Welcome to the Whiteshell Cross Country Ski Club. 

Skiing  is a safe activity for this pandemic season. Skiing on groomed trails provides the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and get some quality exercise. Social distancing is easy to do on a variety of trails. Our programs are on hold until the Health Regulations deem it safe to proceed. Also the warming huts are closed due to Covid so be sure to prepare yourself well to keep warm and safe. 
The Pinawa Golf Course would like to remind you  to stay off of the Greens, Tee blocks and Sand traps on the golf course trail. Thank-you.
