Description:

Eb's Trails offer an extraordinary cross country ski experience with 52 kilometers of groomed ski trails winding through rolling forested terrain. The trail system is varied, allowing skiers of all ages and abilities to have a wonderful experience. The trails are located about an hour's drive north of Saskatoon, just north of Duck Lake on Highway 11 to Prince Albert. They are accessible by two entrances on the west side of the highway, approximately two kilometers apart. Both entrances have parking, a warm-up hut and toilet facilities.

Eb's Trails are only for classic skiing, and no dogs are allowed. Trail maintenance and upkeep of the trail system are performed by volunteers from the Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club, so please help to keep these trails in shape for all.

Cart tracks are being ploughed, Trail maintenance is over.

The Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club was invited to groom ski trails at The Willows golf course. This is being done on Club owned equipment and by Club volunteers. This is the third trail system that the SNSC grooms, with no user fee or outside revenue. 

We groom two loops. The south loop (about 1.5 km) starts on the driving range south of the clubhouse and ends at the skating pond. Take the connector trail to northwest loop (about 4 km). Click here for a map

These trails take advantage of the terrain and are not suitable for weak skiers. Please do not walk on the track. Please be aware that you ski at your own risk. This is our second trial year so we welcome your feedback; you can send it by email or our poll https://snsc.typeform.com/to/WfsQOK

Description

The cross country ski trails in the Blackstrap provincial park were designed for the 1972 Jeux Canada Winter Games.  Currently the park maintains a 5km trail.

The entire trail has been widened, leveled and a couple of problem hills resloped. A new low slope entry/exit point to access the trails by all skill levels has been built. 3 new bypasses have been constructed to provide beginner, intermediate and expert routes. The new shelter is in place on the new access between the parking lot and first intersection. 
  For safety, the competition trail should be skied in a clockwise direction and caution should be exercised on all downhills.
