We have worked very hard to make our trails some of the best cross-country skiing you’ll experience in Central Canada. We have over 20 km of beautiful ski trails that offer both classic and skate skiers the chance to experience the magnificent Canadian Boreal Forest. All trails are groomed for classic skiing and almost 7 km of trails also accommodate skate skiing. With the 2022-23 “Light the Trail” campaign now complete, KNBC boasts 6 km of lit trails (Frank Symonds/Two Towers/Matoos/ Jackrabbit/Mattos Return) and with this – trail widening and flattening was made possible!  Many trail improvements have been completed including continued improvement to our newest trail, Red Fox!  It is a must ski!  Our trails are suited for all skill levels from beginner to expert allowing KNBC to host a variety of events including Paranordic and the largest gathering of school aged children in Canada (500 in 2005) as well as the Manitoba Provincial Championships.

Our trail system was expanded in 2003 with design assistance from Reijo Puiras who is a former Canadian Olympic cross country skier. Over the years the trails have been widened and more trails have been added to enhance and utilize the beautiful property where we are located. We have a total elevation rise of over 60 meters which will afford you some spectacular views. It will also provide you with some thrilling downhill sections.

Night skiing is available with 5 km now lit. Headlamps for early morning or evening continue to be encouraged as trails beyond our lower 5 km are not lit. If you have never skied at night you are in for quite an experience.

The “Light the Trails” 2022-23 campaign is now complete. Thank you to the work of several KNBC and community volunteers and our corporate & governmental sponsors for bringing this project to light (pun intended), increasing safety and accessibility for all.

Also new: KNBC now offers a 9-person Biathlon Range at Lake of the Woods gun Club.

KNBC trail improvements would not have been made possible without the generous funding provided by FedNor, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Northern Ontario Heritage Foundation, City of Kenora, Lake of the Woods Community Foundation, Moncrief Construction Ltd., Cabin Country Realty, The Hardwear Co., and Copperfin Credit Union.
