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.
