La Ronge Ski Trails
La Ronge and Area Ski Trails Print

The La Ronge area offers some of the best cross country skiing in western Canada. Over 60 kilometres of ski trails wind through rugged Precambrian Shield rock outcrops and boreal forests. At Nut Point Campground, near town, 5.5 km of trail are lit for night skiing. The Don Allen Trails near Nemeiben Lake provide 14 km of trails looping through rolling terrain. Connecting the two areas is the 32 km Loppet Trail that snakes through rugged wilderness. Maintaining these trails takes a concerted year round effort. For the past two summers the La Ronge Ski Club Inc. has contracted out trail improvements and held work bees to grade and clear trails. As winter arrives each year Saskatchewan Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport, as well as ski club volunteers, clear fallen trees, mow down brush and rake away debris. Once we have snow the club’s drags and groomers are used to pack the trails and set tracks. Although the Loppet Trail is not in top shape until January or February, the other trails are usually ready for skiing by December and often remain in good condition until the end of March or later. Call the Saskatchewan Ministry of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport office in La Ronge, at 425-4234, to check on trail conditions.
