We are proud to be the recipients of $6.6 million from the Government of Canada's Green and Inclusive Community Buildings Program, and a further $4 million from the City of Edmonton toward the construction of the new River Valley Outdoor Activity Centre, a year round, net-zero carbon building.
Edmonton Ski Club is planning a new facility that will be a welcoming, inclusive, environmentally-responsible community space, located in the heart of Edmonton’s River Valley, known as the River Valley Outdoor Activity Centre.
Our new facility will enable ESC’s community partners, including the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Free Play for Kids, KidSport Edmonton and the Indigenous Sport Council (Alberta) to offer year-round outdoor sport and culture programming. The new facility will accommodate a range of participants, from those currently facing barriers to Olympic-level athletes.
Minimal environmental footprint and accessibility will be enabled due to our unique location, connected by the trail system of Canada’s largest urban park network and Edmonton's Valley Line LRT.
Construction is planned to start in 2024, with the facility open to the public in 2025! Stay tuned for further updates!

The need for change
Our prior facility has reached the end of its lifecycle. We now have new modular buildings at the hill that offer Guest Services, Equipment Rentals, Day Lodge / Warm Up Space and Apres Ski! These buildings will support our operations year-round until our new permanent home is completed.
