Welcome to the Bruce Ski Club — Grey and Bruce Counties, Ontario
The Bruce Ski Club operates some of the most affordable, accessible and best maintained cross-country ski trails in southern Ontario.
Members have unlimited access to the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails at all three Bruce Ski Club locations. Individual and family memberships are available. Non-members may purchase a day pass at a very reasonable rate.
- Sawmill Nordic Centre in Hepworth, Ontario, is our most popular location. This site has trails for novice and advanced skiers. The trails are groomed for both classic and skate skiing. The centre also features a lit loop for night skiing and snowshoe trails cut through rolling hardwood and evergreen stands.
- Colpoys Ski Trail is located northeast of Wiarton, Ontario. It offers cross-country skiing through gently rolling, sheltered woods and open fields. There are many great views across Colpoy’s Bay.
- Rankin Ski Trail is located at Red Bay on the Bruce Peninsula. These well-groomed cross-country ski trails run through wind-sheltered, rolling woodlands. The trails have more of a wilderness feel to them with some nice hills on the north end of the site. [NOTE: Rankin Ski Trail will be closed for the 2016-17 season.]
The Bruce Ski Club hosts events throughout the year for both novice and expert cross-country skiers. This includes the Jackrabbit cross-country ski program for children, an annual used ski equipment swap and ski races for adults, teens and children.
Special thanks to our patrons — Suntrail Source for Adventure, Midwestern Communication and Dan & Jackie Mersich. We would also like to thank our many other sponsors, members and volunteers. Together these people and businesses support the Bruce Ski Club’s mission of keeping cross-country skiing affordable.
Trail is still 90 snow covered. The Chute is bare and the back part of Sheldons has a 20 foot bare patch. Snow is old and dirty. We will not groom anymore unless we get some fresh snow which is probably unlikely.
The trail was groomed on Saturday evening, and should set up for a sensational Sunday. This could be the last dance of the year so get out there and shake it up!
Thanks to our major landowner Ron Gatis for generously sharing his property with us again this year.
THE RANKIN SKI TRAILS ARE CLOSED FOR THE 2016-17 SEASON.
We are in to week 3, our numbers look great, ~80. Looking forward to SS special (individual and family race- new this year), Carnival on the 20th.
