In the winter, the Dunes area of Wasaga Beach Provincial Park provides a spectacular 800 hectare backdrop to 30 kilometres of cross-country ski trails. You will ski through a mixed forest of oaks and towering pines and see a variety of birds and mammals on groomed and track set trails. We also offer an 8 kilometre skating trail.
Located just off Blueberry Trail near the O.P.P. station in Wasaga Beach, the Nordic Centre is the focal point of our cross-country ski area. The Centre is equipped with washrooms, a snack bar offering light snacks and beverages and a fireplace. Modern ski and snowshoe equipment is available to rent, along with ski wax and accessories.
Wasaga Nordic Centre operations are weather dependent, but generally operate from December to March, daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. For more information please contact park staff (705) 429-0943.
