It looks like Mother Nature was on our side this weekend! We are thrilled to announce that the Whiteway is officially open again, thanks to the snow we received over the past few days. A nice skating trail has been groomed on the Lake Windermere Whiteway from Invermere to Windermere; conditions beyond that are not ideal. We recommend that everyone keep an eye out for openings, cracks and/or air pockets as weather is still inconsistent. Thank you to our amazing maintenance team for the hard work!

The Lake Lillian Whiteway and Junior Johnson Trails remain open for cross country skiing, but could also use some more snow! Both Nipika and Panorama Resorts are open for cross country skiing and we’re told that conditions are awesome.

We are still running registrations for the 2021 VirWe are still running registrations for the 2021 Virtual Whiteway Winter Challenge! Weather-dependent, the challenge is set to begin on Jan. 22 and run all month long until Feb. 22. Participants can register individually or as a team and challenge themselves to set a distance goal for them or their team to skate, ski, walk, run, or otherwise self propel themselves across the Lake Windermere Whiteway and/or Lake Lillian Whiteway. Using a distance tracking app or a simple map, we will send out weekly surveys for participants to submit their distances. There are prizes available for the top three teams and top three individuals with the furthest distance accomplished. More details can be found at
