Additional Information
Today (March 17th, 2018), the trail conditions are fantastic. On March 16th, the 20km Loop around Marie Louise Lake was groomed to perfection. The Burma Trail, the Pickerel Lake Trail, and the 10km Ferns Lake Loop (classic skiing only) were all groomed on March 8th and remain in great condition. As a bonus, the Thunder Bay Lookout Road from Rita Lake to the Lookout (18.4km round-trip) was also groomed for both skate and classic on March 8th. The spring skiing here is amazing, so come out and enjoy these long, warm days of skiing while they last. Please note that the Marie Louise Lake Campground (including the Gatehouse and Visitor Centre) is presently closed for the season. Skiers are welcome to park in-front of the Marie Louise Lake Gatehouse and walk 200 metres past the closed gate to where the 20km loop intersects the road. A valid Ontario Parks vehicle permit OR a Thunder Bay Nordic Trails Park Pass must be displayed on the dash of all vehicles. Plowed parking areas to access the ski trails are also available at Rita Lake, Wildlife Habitat Nature Trail and the Marie Louise Lake Lookout/ Picnic Area. Please do not park along Highway 587 as it obstructs snowplowing and trail grooming (and is extremely dangerous). Call the Thunder Bay SnowPhone Hotline at 807-285-0801 or call the Sleeping Giant Park office at 807-977-2526 for the most up to date trail conditions. We have Family Cabin rentals available year round which can be reserved by calling 1-888-668-7275.
