Local non-profit clubs (Calgary Ski Club and Foothills Nordic Ski Club) operate and maintain ski trails at City of Calgary-owned Shaganappi Point Golf Course, Confederation Park Golf Course and Canmore Park (with the support of additional volunteers and funds from the Calgary Nordic Alliance).
With the closure of WinSport’s COP cross-country ski trail network, operators are working to provide more reliable cross-country ski trails than in the past. This is done through more regular grooming (weather permitting), snow farming and harvesting and small-scale, surface-based snowmaking (when logistically feasible). Trails are open 24/7. No dogs allowed on golf courses.
