Trail Maps and Routes(otherwise known as how to find your way around or plan a ski!!)
Dog Friendly Trails at Omineca
During the fall of 2017 we were able to expand two of our trails to increase the area where dogs are welcome (with their owners!).
The Summit Loop has been expanded by just over a kilometer to include a portion of the Home Run and a logging road that loops it back to the Summit Loop. Here is the map: OSC extended DogTrailMap 2017-11
As well, a new trail was built from the Reid Roundabout to the Larch thanks to some logging done by BL Comfor. You can now take your dogs on a longer loop around the Spud/Larch/Cedar trail system. Here is a map showing all of the trails where dogs are welcome: OSC Accessible Dog Trails 2017-11
**PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOGS CLOSE WHEN USING THE SPUD TRAIL SYSTEM AS THERE IS AN ACTIVE TRAPLINE IN THE AREA**
Trying to plan out a ski?
Here are a variety of routes that were developed for the Loppet that offer a variety of distances and difficulties.
Just pick one and have a go!!
How about a snowshoe?
We have two trails that are designed for snowshoeing – they use some ski trails and also give you some chance to head off the trails and meander through the woods and cutblocks – they have both been recently signed. The Nomad is 1.7 km long and the Mad Trapper is 3 km long (with a bypass route to get you around the gully if you don’t want to slide downhill!!)
You may snowshoe on any of the groomed ski trails – we just ask that you stay off of the classic ski set track.

We have two brochures that outline our club and facilities as well as maps of ski and snowshoe trails. They can be found in printed version in the Wax Cabin, Jean Paulson Lodge, Visitor Center (Chamber of Commerce) and Lakes Multiplex.
