We’re lucky to have skiing at Emerald Lake this winter, so let’s show our support

Emerald Lake is a wonderful place to xc ski

If you missed the news earlier this year, Parks Canada decided to end grooming of the xc trails in Yoho and Emerald Lake as a cost-saving measure. Thanks to some new developments, and some concerned people, there will indeed be grooming. This excerpt from an article in the Canmore Leader will bring you up to date:

“A popular cross-country ski area in Yoho National Park has been saved thanks to an agreement between Parks Canada and several organizations that benefit from it remaining open.

Approximately 15 kilometres of track set trails and a 5K loop on Emerald Lake will be available this winter after Parks Canada reached an agreement with Emerald Lake Lodge, Kicking Horse Ski Club and Emerald Lake Sports and Gifts to oversee the maintenance of the trails.”

I also did a post on this issue in August great-news-skiing-at-emerald-lake-this-winter/

If you enjoy skiing at Emerald Lake and Yoho, please help out

How about supporting the Kicking Horse Ski Club(KHSC) by purchasing a membership? It’s only $40, a small price to pay for having such wonderful skiing available.

An added benefit to your ski club membership is that you will be able to take advantage of a special rate at Emerald Lake Lodge.

Any ski club membership will qualify, but if you are not a member of a club already, I think this is a great opportunity to help out.

Send your $40 membership fee to

Emerald Sports and Gifts at Emerald Lake

Kicking Horse Ski Club
Box 161
Field, BC
V0A 1G0

The KHSC will send your membership card in the mail.

You can also purchase a membership at:

  • Friends of Yoho at the Field Visitor Centre(open Thur – Sun 9 – 4)
  • the post office in Field
  • Emerald Lake Lodge
  • Kicking Horse Lodge in Field
  • Emerald Sports and Gifts at Emerald lake.
