Trails Report


Sunday, April 17, 2022

Groming has finished.

All trails are groomed and still in excellent spring condition.

Thanks for your support this last winter

Join us again in November



We improved the main road in preparation for installing a new bridge over Canyon Creek next summer. You will see the difference when you visit.

Thanks to West Fraser/Pacific Inland Resources for providing a free-span bridge.


Welcome to Canyon Creek


We have 22 km of wilderness trails suitable for cross-country and backcountry skiing. Trails are suitable for all skill levels from novice to advanced.

We are in a high-elevation snowbelt that results in cold dry powder for most of the winter. Our grooming season extends from November 21 to April 10.

Elevation of the trails range from 1032 meters up to alpine at 1576 meters.

We groom 8.4 km of trail at the lower elevations. We groom flat with no track setting due to the terrain. Hills are groomed wide enough for turns and stopping.

Another 13.6 km of ungroomed trails are tracked by skiers and snowshoers.

Much of our trails are in open meadows or parkland as a result of a forest fire in the 1930's.

When there is valley fog in town, it's often sunny at Canyon Creek Ski Area.

Canyon Creek is an excellent destination for families with children. It's a place where children can have fun!

Snowshoeing is permitted but users must walk to the side of groomed trails.

Dogs are permitted on all trails as long as owners clean up any messes and put their pets on leash if necessary.

All work is done by volunteers. Currently there are no fees but there is a donation box at the Ski Area to show your appreciation and support.

We currently have two fundraising projects:

Maintain our groomer
Hire an excavator to install culverts to keep our ski trails dry

You can donate on-site or online:



Use the trails at your own risk.

The trails are in a wilderness setting with all the associated risks.

The trails are not patrolled, so tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Ski with a friend.

There is cell coverage on the upper ungroomed trails, but no cell coverage on the lower groomed trails.

Maps are located at major junctions and show where you are.

We recommend a location beacon such as a SPOT or Inreach.



Canyon Creek Ski Area is managed by the BV Outdoor Recreation Society (BVORS) and the Canyon Creek Recreation Society in collaboration
with Rec Sites and Trails BC.

The trails have been developed and maintained by the BVORS since 2007.
