2021-2022 Ski Trail Season

Cross Country Ski Trail grooming has ended for the season.

Trails are inspected and groomed as needed. Upper and Lower Meewasin, Diefenbaker, Kinsmen, and Forest Parks are the main cross country ski trails. Following the completion of the main cross country ski trails, the City will begin grooming trails in 30 neighbourhood parks.     Additional trails are groomed by Saskatoon Nordic Ski Club.  Visit saskatoonnordicski.ca for more information.
A minimum snow depth of 30 cm is required for setting and establishing trails.

Whether a novice, intermediate or advanced skier, you can enjoy a cross country ski experience right here in Saskatoon! 

Cross country ski trails are maintained along the East and West banks of the beautiful South Saskatchewan River and in a variety of parks and open spaces throughout Saskatoon. Nordic Ski Club offers cross country ski lessons for children, youth and adults in Kinsmen Park.  For more information visit Saskatoon Nordic Ski

Ski Trail Etiquette

  • If you enjoy walking in areas where there are ski trails, please respect skiers and avoid groomed trails. Footprints can damage the ski tracks and skating lanes, making skiing difficult and less enjoyable.
  • Dogs are not permitted on ski trails.
  • Please obey directions on one-way trails.
  • Ski on the right on double tracks.
  • Please step off the trail for faster skiers.
