Trail Etiquette Reminder

skiing in a good classic track

Please: Save our classic track!!!

Classic tracks are for parallel skiing only.
If you are skate skiing or if you have to herringbone uphill or snowplow downhill, please use the skate lane only! Otherwise, the classic track cannot be maintained under low snow or heavy traffic conditions. … Thanks.

… a request from our hard-working volunteer Regina Ski Club trail groomers.

Fat Bike Experiment

fat bikes on ski trail

Fat Bikes will be experimented with on selected nordic ski trails around Regina this season. Fat Bikes are NOT regular mountain bikes. They have extremely wide, soft tires that, when used properly, don’t disturb xc skate lanes any more than skate skis. They have been allowed at several mountain trail systems, including Canmore Nordic Center, with good results.

Regina Ski Club (RSC) volunteer trail grooming leaders at Les Sherman Park and AE Wilson Park have agreed to experiment with them for this season. Also, the hiking and snowshoe trails, but NOT ski trails, at WBT will be available to them on a trial basis. Self policing guidelines have been compiled by the Regina Multisport (RMC) and Regina Cycle (RCC) Clubs who approached the RSC for this trial.

The Regina Ski Club

The Regina Ski Club (RSC) provides programs, events and trips for all ages and levels of skiers, individuals and families alike. Club volunteers pack and set ski trails at the White Butte Recreation area north of Emerald Park and within city limits in Wascana Center and a number of city park locations.

Our mission is to create opportunities for recreational and competitive Nordic (cross country) and Alpine (downhill) skiing and snowboarding. The spirit of the club is aptly summed up by our motto: fun, friendship, fitness!
