In order to preserve the state of the trails, dogs are prohibited in Lost Lake Park during winter nordic operations, but are permitted on the free multi-use trails during the winter months. RMOW’s dog regulations apply.
To maintain the compact nature of the cross country ski trails, running is not permitted during the nordic ski season.
Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing on the Valley Trail
UPDATE: March 21st, 2018 - The mulit-use valley trails are no longer being groomed for cross country skiing due to low snow levels and are currently being plowed for springtime use.
Generally in winter approximately four kilometres of the Valley Trail from Rainbow Park to Meadow Park are groomed for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and dogs on a leash are also permitted. There is no trail fee and the trails are groomed approximately four times a week.
Additional sections of the Valley Trail that are groomed for multi-use including cross country skiing include:
- From Fitzsimmons Trail to PassivHaus
- Riverside Campground dyke at Mons Road along Green Lake at Nicklaus North to Alpine Way
