Valhalla Hills Nordic trails

VH Trail

The VH trail is located on the north side of Highway 6 between Hills and Summit Lake.  Look for the blue cross-country skier sign, (24km Northwest of New Denver and 24km South west of Nakusp on Hwy 6). Parking is off the highway but adjacent the highway. Parking can be tight on weekends. Elevation 800-900 metres.

We have approximately 11km of trails groomed for skate and classic. The views along the trails are amazing on a nice day. Looking to the south from the trails you are treated to a view of peaks at 2700 metres. The trails are located in an open forest of conifer, birch and aspen running over terrain that is a mix of skier designed trails and a BC Hydro line access road.

Maintenance of these trails and the parking lot is supported by club volunteers, club memberships (sign-up at http://www.zone4.ca key word “Valhalla”), day pass fees, and various grants. Grooming is still being done by small machinery which is very labour intensive, but we are usually providing well groomed trails. Ultimately our goal is to raise funds for a snow cat that can groom quickly and to a high standard. To get there we need a large membership and large donors to our snow cat fund that we can use for matching grant funding.
