The BioSki Cross-Country & Snowshoe Club has maintained trails in the Laurentian Lake Conservation Area for classic skiing and snowshoeing since 1974. Our desire is to provide a unique cross-country skiing and snowshoeing experience to residents of our community and to visitors to our region.
The Lake Laurentian Conservation Area, through which the ski trails run represents a mosaic of plant communities including: white birch forest, poplar lowlands, stands of red pine and white spruce alder swamps, marshes and beaver ponds. This habitat diversity provides the opportunity to see tracks of several animals including: snowshoe hare, red fox, red squirrel, porcupine and otter. Chickadees are constant companions and one frequently may see ruffed grouse and woodpeckers.
The club is operated purely on a volunteer basis with a small executive assuming the responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the club. A larger group volunteers their time to the labour intensive tasks of clearing and smoothing trails, construction and upkeep.
Our heated ski cottage is where you can purchase day passes, snacks, hot and cold drinks. There are also washrooms available. If the ski cottage is not open, skiers can place their day user fees in the money box at the trailhead.
