Cross Country Skiing
There is no better way to enjoy the stunning beauty of an Elliot Lake winter than while skimming past it on a pair of skis. Because of its location at the heart of the rocky Canadian Shield, Elliot Lake gets cold snowy winters that are ideal for cross country skiing.
The Elliot Lake area offers endless opportunities to explore nature's beauty on skis. Cross-country skiers can enjoy several groomed trails within the City limits and endless kilometers of ungroomed back country roads and trails. The Spine Road Trail offers 5 separate loops of tracked groomed trails ranging in length from 3.5 to 15 kilometers to challenge the novice and expert alike. The fifth loop, a new addition to the trail system, is designed for the good intermediate skier wishing to update their skills to advanced. Rest and warming areas are strategically located along the trail.
