Skiing Terrain

Edmonton Ski Club has five ski runs on it’s site of varying degrees of difficulty. For the 2018 season, only Tin Can and Bunny Hill are open. These are family-friendly, beginner runs.

Bunny Hill is the beginners area and is serviced by a rope tow ski lift. This area is marked as a green area and is regularly groomed and has a small pitch which enables beginners in Skiing or Snowboarding to learn how to get started and the different techniques required to move on to a more difficult terrain.

T-Bar is our longest run and has varying pitches. Intermediate and more advanced skier and snowboarding area. Often groomed at the lift line as the area is used on a regular basis by Race Teams as a training area. With more gentler pitches off to the right of the lift line for skiers and boarders that are moving on to more difficult terrain with instructors.

Grassy is our shortest run and is often left ungroomed. It is not serviced by a direct lift line but can be accessed from T-Bar and Twin Birch. Surrounded by natural tree lines Skiers and Boarders often enjoy this area when we have benefited from a natural snow fall as the pitch often gathers many centimeters of powder snow.

Twin Birch is our steepest pitched run and is classed as a Black Diamond. This area is for skiers and boarders that are at a more advanced level and is serviced by a poma lift. To the right from the lift line there is a 36ft wide area of small moguls.

The Terrain Park is serviced by two lifts Tin Can and Bunny Tow. Again this area has a variety of pitches, jumps, rails, bars and tubes. For skiers and boarders that are at a more advanced level. All jumps, rails, bars and tubes are marked with the degree of difficulty, it is important for all boarders and skiers using this area to familiarize themselves with the Terrain Park Rules. It is mandatory to wear a helmet when riding in this area.

Boarders and Skiers using this area are not permitted to alter, build or introduce any new jumps, rails, bars or tubes without seeking permission from the Edmonton Ski Club GM. Anyone found to be doing so will be removed from site and privileges revoked.
