Conditions just get better and better!

Conditions just get better and better up at the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre with fresh snow falling overnight, perfect temperatures and amazing grooming!  The snowshoe trails have been packed and are now ready for your adventure.

No equipment? no worries: ski and snowshoe rentals are available on site at Dawn Mountain Rentals: they are open daily 10-4.

Yippee ... we are open!

The Golden Nordic Ski Club and Dawn Mountain Ski Trails are now open for full operations with the upper trails reporting to be in fair to good condition. More snow is falling today, and the weather is looking dynamic for the weekend! Starting Friday, December 14, 2018 the rental shop will be in the swing of things and ready to set you up in either classic and skate skis. Don’t forget to sign in at the lodge; stats are super important for us as a club.

See you on the trails!
