Trail Conditions

Tuesday, March28th

I think it’s safe to say the ski season here at Pigeon Lake is essentially over. Tracks are icy and disappearing fast. Although it’s been a pretty sketchy winter, as far as skiable snow was concerned, there were some pretty awsome ski days. 

Have a great summer and don’t forget these trails are great for hikin' and bikin’ as well!

Still skiing here at PLPP. Ground showing in a couple of spots and a few icy patches to watch out for but overall pretty good spring skiing. Won’t last long though with warmer temps on the way.



Monday, March 20th

Happy Spring and, thanks to a light skiff of snow last night, trails at PLPP are in good shape. Possibly some of the best skiing this season!



Sunday, March 19th

Trails at Pigeon Lake remain skiable. Rundle’s has a few bare spots that can be bi-passed and PLPP is in nice shape with no bare spots. we had a light skiff of snow last night which greatly helped to prolong the season.

I’ve been using Swix blue universal klister and have heard reports that waxless skis are working good as well.                                                                 



Friday, March17th

Trails at Pigeon Lake Provincial Park and Rundle’s Mission are still skiable.
Great Klister skiing. Should last at least into next week. Check our website for more up to date info as the days go by.


Saturday, March 11th

Trails at Pigeon Lake have been packed, groomed and trackset. 
Conditions are excellent at this time and we should be skiing for at least three or four more days here. Better grab it while you can!


Saturday, February 25th

Well, we’re back in the track, albeit skied in tracks, but nevertheless, on the boards again!
A couple of inches of new snow has freshened up our trails here at Pigeon Lake.
 If this trend continues, conditions will only improve and hopefully there will be a few more
weeks of good skiing left in the season.   Have a great what’s left of the weekend.


Friday, February 10th

Yesterday was a good day. The Pigeon Lake area received just enough snow to allow grooming and tracksetting.
PLPP is in great shape and Rundle’s Mission will be worked over tomorrow morning. It’s shaping up to be a great weekend of skiing but you’ll have to grab it while you can. 


Friday, January 13th

Trails at Pigeon Lake have been trackset.                 Ski conditions at both Rundle’s and PLPP are going to be absolutely fabulous for the next couple of days.   Let’s have some fun!

Good morning and Happy New Year to All 

I’m happy to report that ski trails a Pigeon Lake and Rundle’s Mission have been trackset. Hopefully conditions will improve, considering all the snowmobile traffic, when regular grooming and tracksetting resume in the near future. 

If you encounter sled traffic on the trails please respectfully ask the perpetrator(s) to cease and desist and leave the trail immediately the way they entered. If possible, record and/or take pictures of the perps including (most important of all) their licence plate. 

Contact our Conservation Officer, Kevin Rowsell at 403-391-0911, as soon as possible. You can also contact the Park Enforcement Line at 403-350-5066 to report the incident. 

Apart from all that, please make the effort to get out and enjoy the wonderful outdoors as often as possible this winter. We’re off to a great start this year and we are so lucky to have these beautiful areas to ski/hike/snowshoe and enjoy nature at it’s best. 

Best wishes to all….. Mike

Unfortunately, ski trails at Pigeon Lake are pretty thin and user tracked. Not expecting any siginificant amount of snow before Christmas but could see some by New Years.                       Trails will be groomed and trackset the moment conditions improve.                                                

Best of the Season to All
