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”!

Cross-Country Ski Camping

Posted on Tuesday January 30th 2018

Would you like to get away from the hectic pace of today’s living for a few days and replace it with:

  • Breathing clean, fresh air and getting plenty of exercise

  • Viewing the beauty of a boreal forest in all its winter glory

  • Observing and interacting with the many birds and animals that live here in winter

  • Soaking up a little peace and solitude

  • Choosing to ski on trails that will challenge your skiing abilities

  • Adventure, who knows what is around the next bend!

    Then my friends may we suggest that you pack your favourite easy meals and head out to one of the following shelters for a day or two... and would you believe that all of this is for FREE!

I would ask skiers to please move over to the side of the tracks if you have to herring bone up a hill. Skiers travel both directions on the trails. The ones going the opposite direction that you are would like those tracks to go down the hill you just climbe
