Come on Folks! Spray River X Country Ski - Beginners Welcome

  • PetroCan corner of Hwy 22 and TransCanada Hwy

    Hwy 22 and TransCanada , Calgary, AB (map)

    51.045113 -114.057144

  • Dark Grey Corolla
  • Spray River Trail is a pretty 6k of gently rolling hills. The trail is wide, and track set. There is a picnic table and shelter half way for lunch right by the river. Beautiful scenery, views of mountain tops, and wildlife. The trail is sheltered so wind is not an issue. This is not a very difficult trip. Out and back is 12km total.

    Skis can be rented cheaply at MEC, UofC Outdoor Program, and Sport Rent on 16th Ave near Shouldice.

    You will need a park pass to park in Banff NP. If people are interested, we can go for a soak in the Hot Spring afterwards. $7.50 for the pool, $1 for a towel, $2 for a bathing suit. If you are not interested in the pool, don't worry about it.

    We should be back in town around 5-6pm.

    $20 suggested for carpool. I have a park pass and can take 2 people in my car.

    The weather forecast calls for minus 10C and clear blue sky with no wind.

    Dogs are welcome - on leash - on this trip! They can pull you up the hills!

    If anyone wants to come last minute - please call me at at 7am tomorrow morning. [masked]

    Just a reminder if you have an AMA membership and you show it at the Hot Springs you get a discount.
