Sleeping Giant Loppet: Trail Conditions

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Beautiful snowfalls this week will help crews as they head to the park to widen and pack the trails in preparation for the Loppet.

Be sure to call the CRC Communications Thunder Bay Nordic Trails 24 - Hour "Snow Phone"at 807-285-0801 for daily updated trail reports.

If you plan to ski at the Park prior to the Loppet, keep in mind that the Visitors' Centre at Marie Louise Lake is open weekends only, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  This is a great place to start training from for all events.  During the week, skiers should access the trails from Rita Lake where an in-out course of any distance may be skied or the 30km loop including the Burma and Pickerel Lake trails can be completed.  The trails will be closed for a period of time prior to the Loppet for final grooming. Check the snow phone at 807-285-0801 for details or the Thunder Bay Nordic Trails website at

REMEMBER: If you are a Thunder Bay Nordic Trails member you must display your membership card on the dash of your vehicle while in the park. Non-members must purchase a day permit at the Joeboy Lake self serve fee station located just inside the park boundary.
