Cross Country Skiing at Georgian Nordic

The GNOAC boasts more than 30 kilometres of trails just a 10-minute drive from Parry Sound. No matter if you’re a skate or classic skier, a racer-in-training or just out for a quiet afternoon in the woods, we’ve got plenty of trails for you.

For a shorter loop, try the Partridge, a 3-kilometre loop so peaceful you’d swear you were deep in the forest, if not for the well-manicured trail beneath your skis, courtesy of our expert groomers.

For a longer ski, glide down the Lynx. Discover why this 9-kilometre loop has been named an Amazing Place by the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve: dotted by frozen lakes, granite cliffs and featuring some punchy climbs to get your heart rate up, it’s the classic Canadian Shield ski experience in one unforgettable loop.

Those are just two examples from the GNOAC’s vast network, which includes our longest trail, the Beaver, a 14-kilometre trail stretching to the wildest reaches of our property.

Get your ski gear or rent equipment at our cozy on-site chalet, known as the Burrow. It’s open during the ski season from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

At any time, you can get detailed trail conditions posted daily on the GNOAC website’s trail conditions page.
