During ski season our hours of operation are:
The Stake Lake Nordic Trails offer some of the best skiing and snowshoe trails in British Columbia.
Skiers enjoy over 60km of expertly trackset and groomed trails that are perfect for both classic and skate skiers with a variety of trains to suit all ages and skill levels. Over 13km of snowshoe trails that range from easy to extremely challenging make Stake Lake a great destination for snowshoers as well.
All of our trails are maintained by some of the passionate and skilled volunteers who make up the heart of the Overlander Ski Club. When the snow falls you will often find our grooming volunteers out with the SnoCat or Ginsus late into the night and before the sun rises in the morning, providing us with some of the finest groomed trails in British Columbia. Volunteers on the snowshoe trails work hard at marking the trails, managing downed trees, and ensuring the trails are in top shape for our members and guests.
The Stake Lake Ski trails are beautiful during the day and they are equally spectacular at night. The trail around the lake and a few of the smaller surrounding trails are completely lit at night. With our lodge open until 9:30 on many evenings night skiing has become extremely popular with skiers and snowshoers alike.
While dogs are not allowed on the regular ski or snowshoe trails during ski season we do have a 5km dog-friendly ski trail across the road and there are plans in the works for a dog- friendly snowshoe trail in that area as well. Our dog trail is designed for skiers to all move in one direction for the safety of skiers and dogs alike. Please pick up after your dogs so everyone can enjoy the trails.
While Stake Lake is an excellent location for biking in the summer months, bikes are NOT allowed on the Stake Lake Ski Trails once the trails are open for skiing or are in the process of being prepared for opening.
Note: The Stake Lake Ski Trails are closed to vehicles all year except for maintenance work.
