Additional Information
What a beautiful Family Day Weekend we've had here at the park! The 20km loop was in great shape, the cabins were fully booked, and the Visitor Centre was open (with a fire going in the activity room) on Monday the 18th. As of February 18th, our amazing volunteers and park staff have put in a combined total of 67 days of work on our ski trails. As a result, the 20km loop around Marie Louise Drive is in great shape for both skate and classic. This trail was groomed on February 16th and it will need a touch-up this week after many skiers took advantage of the great weather on the weekend. A huge thank you goes out to Kris J., Dan F, Kevin V., Rob M., Bill F., Ross J., Gord R., Jim K, Hanna D., and Lily C. for all the hard work you have put into getting our trails up to standard. Both the Burma Trail and Pickerel Lake Trail have been cleared of brush and Peter Crooks is presently (@ 3pm on Feb. 18th) prepping for the Loppet. The skiing will be exceptional for this year's event, so be sure to make it out here on Saturday, March 2nd. On February 6th, the Thunder Bay Lookout Road was groomed for skating, however, the recent snowfalls have since covered the established base there. The park is a winter wonderland with over 75cm of snow accumulation and the final preparations are underway to make sure our world-class ski trail system is in top shape for the Loppet and spring skiing. Thanks to our capable staff and volunteers, the spring skiing at Sleeping Giant will probably be one of those special seasons the skiing community remembers for years to come. The park's rental cabins are available year round and can be reserved by calling 1-888-668-7275. For daily trail updates, please call the Thunder Bay Nordic Trail Snow-Phone at 285-0801.
