Coming Soon to Aberdeen – Cross-Country Ski Trails
The City is excited to announce the newest addition to its outdoor recreation trail repertoire—a new cross-country ski track at West Highlands Park in Aberdeen.
Opening Friday, December 17 (weather dependent), the ski trail will be available for anyone to use, free of charge.
The cross-country ski track is a 1 km loop that circles the soccer fields and community centre. The location was chosen due to its high elevation, which is likely to have more snow, and the availability of the park land.
The trail will be track set regularly using Parks personnel and specialty track-setting equipment for classic- or skate-style skiing. The unsupervised trail will be open seven days/week provided there is sufficient snow to safely use it. The washroom at West Highlands Community Centre will be open daily all winter.
“We’re excited for people to have another opportunity to get outside, be active, and enjoy the season. Keeping it free means it can be enjoyed by everyone,” said Jeff Putnam, the City’s Parks and Civic Facilities Manager.
The City is optimistic that this is a venture that will return to the park annually, depending on snow and weather conditions.
