Cross Country Skiing - Northwest Territories

During the winter months in the Northwest Territories the days are shorter, the temperatures drop, the rivers and lakes freeze over and the ground is covered with ice and snow. The conditions are ripe for cross country skiing. The backcountry roads, gravel highways, cut lines, ice roads, recreation trails, frozen rivers and lakes become xc skiing trails. Some of which are dedicated to xc skiing while others are shared trails.

Northwest Territories Community XC Ski Trails

There are community cross country ski trails which are groomed and under the lights during the winter months. The trails around Frame Lake in Yellowknife and Boot Lake in Inuvik are, both, cross country ski trails in their respective communities during the winter.

NWT Frozen Rivers & Lakes for XC Skiing

In many cases the frozen rivers and lakes are the preferred cross country ski trails to explore in the Northwest Territories. Almost every accessible frozen river and lake is a xc ski route. The Mackenzie River - the longest river and the Great Slave Lake - biggest lake - are both destinations for cross country skiing.

Cross Country Ski Rentals in the Northwest Territories

Cross country ski rentals are available in a few of the NWT communities, but it is wise to bring your own skies when visiting. There are also wilderness resorts which operate during the winter months which provide wilderness cross country skiing experiences.
