High Park Ski Club

XCountry Day Trips

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers welcome!

 Looking for a great way to enjoy Canada’s winters? Leave the crowds and lift lines behind and check out the cross-country side  of HPSC. With a few lessons you will fly with grace,  speed and efficiency over the forested trails. Cover distances and  hills you never thought possible with a few lessons. Add skate- skiing and you’ll be even faster. The only thing you stand to lose is  calories!

 For something really different, try snowshoeing with us too!  Snowshoers travel on the same day trips as cross-country skiers,  since you can snowshoe at almost all of the cross-country ski  resorts we go to. We offer a number of guided snowshoe tours.  Check the cross-country day trip schedule for the dates of all our  cross-country and snowshoe outings.

 Our day trips are a great way to meet people, learn a new winter sport and generally enjoy winter. We offer more than 20 cross-  country/snowshoe day trips from December to March on  Saturdays and Sundays. If you are thinking about joining the club or are new to cross-  country skiing or snowshoeing, you probably have a lot of  questions. If you don’t find the answers on our website, please feel free to contact us at crosscountry@hpsc.ca. We look forward to  seeing you on the trails this winter!

Lessons for all ski levels will be offered.
