Take your pooch for some great outside exercise!!  This 3.8 km trail is accessed via Gilgan Pit Road (entry is about 1 km south of main club entrance on Hwy 35 – at the top of Hopper’s Hill).  There is ample parking at the start of the trail.

Biathlon (Omineca Owls)

The Owls are known to haunt the biathlon range winter and summer!!  Join them in training sessions and competitions on the range.

Trails and Grooming

The Omineca Ski Club maintains over 30 km of ski trails of every level of difficulty.  The trails, that are also ideal for mountain biking or hiking in the summer, are within our recreation area plus extended trails within the adjacent Burns Lake Community Forest.  We have a 1.5 km lit track and a 3.8 km dog friendly trail. We also have two specially designated trails for snowshoeing.  Follow this link for a map of our main trails and find some recommendations for routes of various lengths.
