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 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.

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 sponsorsmembers and volunteers. Together these people and businesses support the Bruce Ski Club’s mission of keeping cross-country skiing affordable.

Great day skiing today. Trail in great shape. We groomed tonight for Monday, so trail will have adequate time to set up. We are hosting the Great Wolf Invitational High School race tomorrow with over 260 competitors. The trails are open, even though the race is on between 10 am and 1pm. Come ski and come watch. Later, Fred Scheel.

Colpoys report:
A bit more of the trail has opened up with the cold temps, but there is still water across the trail on the Beaverpond , porcupine and west trails. Those trails are closed. Tracks were set on the rest of the trail Sat. morning. Keep wishing for more snow and cold temps.
