New ski trails open in Wheat City

Enlarge Image

(SUBMITTED)

A new cross-country ski trail system in Brandon is ready and open, the city announced yesterday.

The groomed trail is about 3.5 km long and nestled in behind the Waterfall of Lights display and the outdoor skating oval, just to the west of the Community Services Complex on McGregor Avenue. Access to the trail is located off Hilton Avenue.

This new trail system replaces the previous groomed trail system the city offered at the Riverbank Discovery Centre, and provides more shelter from wind and drifting snow.

Another cross-country ski trail in the city is also open, at the upper portion of the Wheat City golf course. However, the lower portion of the golf course trail remains closed as city workers continue to remove trees from the area.

Cross-country skiers also have nearby trails at the Brandon Hills, Spruce Woods and Riding Mountain National Park to choose from.
