Cross-Country Skiing

With no lifts and no lines, cross-country skiing is one of the best ways to enjoy BC’s winter landscape. Skiers can kick up their heels at one of more than 50 Nordic areas, ranging from BC’s mountain resorts—virtually all of which have groomed, track-set trails—to small ski clubs in charming mountain towns. Some routes allow you to ski right from your condo door; others feature lit trails for night skiing, which can make for a thrilling date night. At trail’s end, rustic warming huts tempt with hot chocolate and woodstoves.
