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.

Register Online

For the second year, the Regina Ski Club is offering online member registration.
To register, go to the Regina Ski Club Registration Site.

For more information on the benefits of membership and methods of registration,

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!
