Cross-country skiers skiing in single file - Rankin Ski Trails, Bruce Ski Club

The Bruce Ski Club offers some of the best cross-country skiing in southern Ontario.

The club maintains trails for cross-country skiing at locations in Grey and Bruce Counties. It also has snowshoe trails in Hepworth, Ontario.

  • Colpoys Ski Trail is located on the Bruce Peninsula, which is bordered by Lake Huron and Georgian Bay.
  • Sawmill Nordic Centre is located in Hepworth, Ontario, at the crossroads between Owen Sound, Sauble Beach and Wiarton, Ontario.

Our cross-country ski season averages 80 to 90 days each year. In some years we have had over 140 skiable days during the season.

The club’s cross-country ski and snowshoe trails are frequented by residents of Grey and Bruce Counties.
