 Winter is still here (for at least a month or so more, anyway), so it’s best to take advantage of the winter weather while it’s around—and what better way to embrace the season than to head to the hills! Grande Prairie is just north of some fantastic ski hills. Whether you prefer downhill or cross-country, you’ll be sure to find something to tickle your skiing (or snowboarding) fancy.

Nitehawk Recreation Area

Nitehawk Recreation area is a downhill ski area located 14 km south of town. Nitehawk boasts 9 runs, a mogul course, a halfpipe and two terrain parks. ALL runs are lit up at night for night skiing. Nitehawk also offers an exciting luge track—after some introductory lessons, all are welcome to try it out! In addition, a variety of ski and snowboard lessons, courses and certification programs are available. It’s the largest non-mountain resort of its kind in Northern Alberta.

Wapiti Nordic Ski Club

The Wapiti Nordic Ski Club is a first-class nordic ski facility located just 8 km south of town. Skiiers will find more than 35 kilometers of skiing trails—suitable for both skate and classical techniques—at their disposal. In addition, the club has the longest night skiing trail in Alberta. With adult and children’s ski lessons available as well as the women-only “Chicks on Sticks” and men-only “Tanks on Planks” programs, you’ll find something for everyone. Ski rentals are available at the club.
