The  Valhalla Hills Nordic Ski Club promotes cross-country skiing in the North Slocan Valley. We groom and maintain approximately 12km of trail, 4km of the rail trail in Hills, BC and 8+kms at Valhalla Hills Ski Trails  midway between Nakusp and New Denver (24km:24km).

For all date and timetable information, please go to ‘Kids Programs’

Non Members welcome

You don’t have to be a member to use the trails we groom, but we ask that you sign the liability release form at the trail head and leave us a some money to help us cover the cost of plowing the parking lot, and grooming the trails. Dozens of new skiers come and go and yet there is only $10 in the box. Nelson Nordic found that when the stationed a person at their trail head to collect fees their non member contributions went up ten times. We don’t want to do that, but we would like fair contributions to keep us grooming. After 15 cm of snow our grooming costs are about $200 between fuel, machinery and groomer.


When you join Valhalla Hills Nordic Ski Club your membership includes a season pass to the Valhalla Hills Ski Trail and membership in our Nordic ski family that choose to embrace outdoor activity and rejoice in the winter season. Our membership is growing from 68 in 2019, to 88 in 2020, to over 135 by mid January 2022. Membership and volunteerism make our club function. Join and see how you can contribute skills to our effort to bring quality programs and skiing to our corner of the West Kootenays.

  1. Hey skiers, as of 8am Dec 20 main power line trail is groomed and mostly track set. All side loops have been snowmobile packed and one pass with groomer has been made on loop above parking lot. Hope to get back to finish grooming by morning of Dec 21. Thanks for being patient with the new guy on the groomer. Wes.

  2. Dear Valhalla Nordic ski club
    We are touring the west kootenays and are hopping from xc ski trail to xc ski trail. We luckily found your trails near summit lake today. We really lucked out as one of your volunteers had just finished grooming. We skied every inch of your trails and loved it. I was a ski coach with my kids in the 2000s in Kamloops at stake lake trails. Your hilly black trails are the best “terrain park” I have ever seen for xc skiers. You did an amazing job laying out those trails and then clearing them. We had so much fun……. and we are in our early 50s. Your kids are lucky to have such dedicated parents and volunteers to make this happen. Your trail building skills are fantastic. The Ginsu also works great on the trails.
    Happy skiing,
    Klaus and Rachel
