Trails & Facilities
07/02/2021: DUE TO THE LACK OF SNOW, TRAILS ARE GROOMED LESS FREQUENTLY. PLEASE USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
There are 8+ kilometres of trails used by the Inuvik Ski Club. Trails are maintained by a team of volunteer groomers.
Please take a trail map with you, as there are some locations where snowmobile trails merge with our ski trails.
Trails are maintained by a team of volunteer groomers. The club has various grooming equipment including chain drags, a track-setter, and a skate-groomer.
Grooming clinics are held to train grooming and maintenance volunteers in the preparation of classic and skate ski trails. For grooming advice, see the Ski Trail Grooming Guide prepared by the NWT Recreation & Parks Association.
Want to bring your pooch skiing or walking on the ski trails with you? Please follow proper trail etiquette:
Pick up after your dog.
Keep your dog on a leash, under control and out of the way of other skiers.
When trails are groomed, keep to the side of the trail and keep your dog out of the ski tracks.
Don't bring your dog to racing events such as the Loppet.
Don't bring your dog into the chalet.

The ISC Chalet is located at the head of the green trail, on Gwich’in Road, next to the Jackrabbit Hill. The Chalet is a cozy place to change your boots, meet friends, and have a snack.
The Inuvik Ski Club chalet is open to all Members. Members can obtain the access code to the building with membership fees.
The chalet is heated but has no running water or toilet facilities. The nearest rest rooms are located at the Midnight Sun Recreation Centre across Gwich’in Road from the ski hut.
A limited number of lockers are available for Members to store their gear.
The chalet also has ski waxing benches, waxing irons and a selection of waxes available to Members.
The light switch for the trail lights is located just inside the chalet and operates on a timer.

In 2016, Bullfrog partnered with the Arctic Energy Alliance to install a 5 kW solar installation on the roof of the ski club’s maintenance building, which is generates enough clean energy to match the building’s annual winter energy consumption.
