As we all know, Edmonton truly is a winter city, so embrace winter and get active! Cross country skiing is easy to learn, offers an excellent full body workout, and is an fun way to enjoy Edmonton.
The Edmonton Nordic Ski Club offers lessons and equipment rentals and there are many other places around Edmonton where you can rent equiment as well (MEC, Strathcona Wilderness Centre, and Totem Outdoor Outfitters to name a few).
The City of Edmonton web site offers trail maps and descriptions, so it's easy to find a place to ski, especially in our beautiful river valley.
Much of the river valley trail system is plowed and maintained through the winter as part of the winter city strategy, including 55 km of groomed cross-country ski terrain. The trails at Kinsmen Park and Goldbar Park are groomed first, so they're probably a good place to start after a fresh snowfall. Goldbar Park offers beginner, intermediate and difficult trails, and is one of the most popular places to cross country ski in Edmonton.
Of course, if you're more interested in spectator sports, you can always check out the annual Canadian Birkebeiner, an 55km race that takes place on the second Saturday of February near Edmonton every year.
