Bear Mountain Nordic Ski TrailsDawson Creek
Cross country skiers can get some exercise at the Bear Mountain Nordic Ski Trails near Dawson Creek. The Bear Mountain area has more than 20 km of groomed trails through forested areas. The trails are just 10 minutes from the downtown area. Pick up a map of the trails at the Visitor Centre, and remember to dress warmly.
If you do get cold on the trails, there are four warming stations along the way, each with an open fire available. The trails range from beginner to advanced in skill level, with some hills available on the advanced runs. A small fee is required to access the trails. Several moonlit skis are offered each year by the local ski club, which maintains the trails. There’s also a pub on-site at the base of the Bear Mountain Ski Hill.
