Weekly Whiteway Report

A weekly look at the winter conditions on Lake Windermere

While several brave skaters have enjoyed some pre-season skating, the Whiteway is still a ways from opening, and we don’t recommend venturing out there unless you can guarantee the safety of the areas you’re skating. We need 12 inches of ice to get our big machine out there, plus a good dump of snow to groom the ski trail. We are hoping for lots of pre-Christmas cold and snow so we can have an early opening like last year.

Whiteway Season Passes now available! For only $60 you can get unlimited access to the Whiteway for the entire season. Your season pass is included in your Toby Creek Nordic membership, and also includes a number of local discounts, access to programs and a free magazine. Get yours on our new website here: http://tobycreeknordic.com.

Tickets now on sale to the Best of Banff Film Festival! This event sells out every year, and proceeds go towards our ski programs. Tickets are only $25 and available at Crazy Soles in Invermere and Lusti’s in Panorama. Event is on Sunday, January 7th.
