The Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre is operated by the Bulkley Valley Cross Country Ski Club. The Centre exists because of the volunteer efforts of ski club members, who always offer a warm welcome to visitors.
Trails are groomed for both classic and skate skiing and maintained regularly with state-of-the art grooming equipment. The trails are well-marked, with terrain ranging from rolling to rugged.
Night skiing is provided on 5 kilometres of lit track and is popular with the after-work crowd because of the centre’s close proximity to town. Lights are on until 9:30pm daily.
The dog trails provide 11 kms of trails to be enjoyed by the whole family, including four-legged members!
