Esterhazy Cross Country Ski Club

Our Club:

Esterhazy Cross Country Ski Club (Click here to open a map of where you can find us) is a member of CrossCountry Canada, its division Cross Country Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan Ski Association. As such, our membership benefits from this association in a number of ways, some of which are liability insurance, map grants, newsletters, education & development. Check out Cross Country Saskatchewan or Cross Country Canada website for more information.

Our club is a volunteer-run organization that continues to improve each year. We are a group who is excited to share our love of fresh air, exercise & beauty of the outdoors. Thank you to all those individuals who help clear and groom our 14 km of classic and 6 km of skate-ski trails, maintain equipment, clean and stock the ski hut, keep wood supplied for outside fires and our wood stove inside of the ski chalet, wax skis and any other jobs that are required to keep our club running.

In 2018 the Esterhazy Cross-country Ski Club has partnered with the East Qu'Appelle Cartel Mountain Bike Club to introduce groomed trails for winter fat-biking. Fat bike users are required to sign-up as ski club members as well as pay an additional Fat Biking fee of $30.00. There is also groomed trails for snowshoeing.

If you need to access the ski hut or need any help, the executive will gladly answer any questions; we ask that you help by keeping the area clean, helping to replenish wood supply, respecting the equipment and facilities and being responsible for your own safety. As a member, your assistance with the many events and participation in a fundraiser would be greatly appreciated. Being involved as an executive member gives one a renewed understanding of the commitment of our club. New members are always welcome; so come out and join the club!

Ski Chalet:

Our Ski Chalet, which is situated at our trailhead, is now just visible from the road (see map). The chalet was moved slightly and lifted enough to get beams under it and level it out. This was necessary to save the floor of our building, as it was previously sitting too close to the ground and lacked ventilation. We feel we are good now and expect that our floor and building, with some maintenance, will last for years to come. We owe a huge thank you to Hilltop Metals for moving our chalet. It's not the usual thing they do, so don't ask them to move your building. But if you know anyone from Hilltop Metals, be sure to give them a hearty thank-you!

The chalet has a wood stove, plenty of wood, a fire pit, porta-potti and seating areas inside and out of the hut. Some ski equipment is available for use. Feel free to start a fire and enjoy the beautiful warmth of a wood stove. You should also feel free to bring out a meal and treat your kids to a little adventure.


Via email postings and our event calendar on this webpage, all members are invited to attend various events throughout the season which include moonlight skis, wax clinics, family fun days, ski tournaments, loppets and competitions.

There is an assortment of skis, boots, poles at the ski chalet available for your use.

Donations are welcome from non-members!
