Cross Country Skiing

The Algoma area can boast some of the finest Nordic skiing terrain, track and facilities in the world. With thousands of kilometres of trails, cross country skiing in Algoma is an adventure like no other. Backcountry trails lead adventurous skiers through snowy remote valleys where the silence is broken only by the muffled rush of mountain streams. Meticulously groomed well-marked trails offer experiences for novice and experienced Nordic skiers of all ages, great for couples, groups of friends and families.

Hiawatha Highlands has over 45 km (24 mi) of cross country ski trails and 14 km of double track snowshoeing. At Searchmont Resort, snowshoers enjoy over 50 km (32 mi) of groomed trails. Stokely Creek Ski Lodge has 120 km (72 mi) of uninterrupted cross country ski trails that take you through the Algoma Highlands and up to King Mountain. You’ll find cross country ski and snowshoe rentals, warm up shacks, lessons and acommodations close by.

Strap on your skis for and experience the trails at the Thessalon Ski Trails in the Stewart Highlands. With over 8km of groomed trails provided by volunteers and welcoming landowners, the Thessalon Ski Trail is a picturesque adventure.

Wilderness cross country skiing trails can also be found in Elliot Lake, St. Joseph Island, Wawa, White River and many provincial parks.
