A Destination

The Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre is located less than 1 km from the base of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.  With a beautiful log chalet, lessons, rentals and regular grooming, Dawn Mountain is a must-visit for any winter vacation in Golden, BC.

The 33 km of trails at Dawn Mountain are groomed regularly for classic and skating on an as needed basis using a Bombardier 275 and Bombadier 400 Snow Cats, YTS renovator and Ginzu groomers. We groom within 24 hours of snowfalls and every weekend to provide very good to excellent conditions. Expect soft powder snow when it is snowing. Watch for natural hazards including wildlife on trails. It rarely rains as our temperatures are consistently 4 degrees lower than the temperatures reported in the town of Golden.  We do have one dog trail, Dipsy Doodle.  Dipsy Doodle is the 1km trail that heads south from the main stadium.  No dogs are permitted on the other trails.

Perfect for After Work

The Golden Golf Course has 6 km of classic trail close to Golden's downtown core.  These trails are groomed on an as-needed basis and provide the perfect opportunity to "get out" when you don't have time to go all the way to Dawn Mountain.

CLASSIC: The Golden Golf Club trails are groomed for classic skiing only.

STAY ON THE TRAILS: Please stay on the groomed trails and watch for natural hazards. The Golf Club asks skiers and snowshoers to resist the temptations to ski on the hilly 'greens' as they get negatively impacted by skier and snowshoe traffic.

DONATIONS: If you are not a club member, please remember to use the drop box for your $2 donation to help pay for the golf course grooming (fuel costs).

DOGS: Due to the irregular grooming, the Golf Course ski trails are not track set for our canine friends. If you see skiers with their dog, please gently remind them of this expectation.
