Duck Mountain Nordic Club

Welcome

Welcome to the Duck Mountain Nordic Club(formerly the Kamsack Ski Club). We provide 54 km of trail in the boreal forest of Duck Mtn. Provincial Park. Trail fall and shelter maintenance along with grooming are a collaboration of Park and club volunteers. The majority of the trails are tracked for classic skiing but we endeavour to add a skate lane to the Golf course and Firetower loop. We add a skate lane to the Rundle loop for the loppet. Seargent Lake and Moose lake are wide enough and skateable if you so choose. The back country trails are hilly and test one’s fitness and technical skills. In addition to the Log Inn shelter at the parking lot there are 5 shelters: Jack Rabbit, Ski Hill, Rundle Lake, Tamarack and Moose Lake. The trail from Tamarack shelter, south, has recently been widened to the downhill ski chalet where you can have a lunch. Of course it is uphill home from there! Snowshoers are welcome but encouraged to stay off the groomed trails. Walkers are discouraged as the footprints leave deep holes that damage the trails for skiers. All users of the trails, both in winter and summer, are encouraged to join the club as funding is based on membership numbers. This funding allows us to maintain and make improvements to our trail system. Of course VOLUNTEERS are appreciated and guaranteed to get some extra “Trail Karma”!

Loppet Grooming Update 

Loppet grooming in the process. Seargent, Rundle and moose Lake shelter to ski hill shelter have been renovated and packed. They will be track set with the sled tomorrow morning: please allow time to set up as the trails are very soft so please avoid these trails. 
 Firetower Batka major to moose lake shelter and Ski hill will be packed tomorrow and track set Friday morning. Please avoid these trails so as to allow to set up for the loppet skiers.

Loppet Registration closes tomorrow evening at Zone4.ca

Grooming

In order to have a fresh set of tracks for the skiers, the Park will be out grooming the trails on Wednesday/Thursday this week. The classic tracks will be set over 2 days. Thus some of the trails will not have a classic track for a day. The warn weather may tweak the schedule a bit.

We ask that you please NOT WALK OR SNOW SHOE on the freshly set trails.

Shelters

All the shelters will be booked Friday night, 23rd. The shelters will be occupied by volunteers on Satuday Feb 24.

Thank you!

Registration is still open at Zone4.ca
