Cross-Country Skiing

Blue River may be famous for heli and backcountry skiing, but you need not be an adrenaline-junky to ski here. Breathe in crisp alpine air, gliding along a shimmering trail in winter sunshine. Click into your bindings, and head to Eleanor Lake and Blue River Pine Provincial Park where set track trails provide plenty of cold weather exercise to keep you warm all winter. Or, spend your days exploring unmarked wilderness trails – locals can tip you off to a trail that’s just right for you.

Note: Blue River does not have a local ski rental outfitter. Please discuss rental needs with the listed touring companies above or bring your own equipment to utilize in the backcountry. Blue River is located in avalanche country. Check for local and regional avalanche risk bulletins to get prepared before heading out.
