Kananaskis Trail Grooming Updates


Grooming and Trail Maintenance in Kananaskis Country

The Nordiq Alberta proposal for a pilot project to implement a Paid Parking Program in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park has been submitted to Alberta Parks. Discussions with the province about the proposal are ongoing and we remain cautiously optimistic.

Thank you for your continued support!

Sept 16th, 2020 Update

Since early June Nordiq Alberta has been working with stakeholders to find solutions that would enable the winter ski trail grooming in Kananaskis to be sustained at least through the winter 2020-21 ski season.   To that end, we have developed a proposal for a 2020-21 Pilot Project which is now before Alberta Parks.   The project would  implement a paid parking pass program for Peter Lougheed Provincial Park that would, by the end of the ski season, return to Alberta Parks 100% of the funding that would otherwise have been obtained through cancellation of the grooming activity by parks staff.


The concept is quite simple and combines the use of online technology with volunteer contributions (both cash and time) to bring in the required amount of funding.

For years, these trails within Kananaskis Provincial Park have provided access to the mountains for thousands of skiers. The decision to cut funding for trail maintenance and grooming is one that affects us all - recreational and competitive skiers alike.
