Come out and try the Seven Bridges snowshoe trail! It is 4.5 km of rolling terrain through forest and cutblocks. There is a shortcut option partway along. Seven Bridges is dog-friendly, but be mindful it is near our ski trails so please keep your dog under control at all times and leashed in the parking lot and when crossing Nordic trails. Snowshoeing is not permitted on groomed trails, except in those places where snowshoe trails cross over our Nordic trails. At these points, all users should exercise caution and respect.
A fee is required to help cover costs associated with maintaining the parking lot, snowshoe trail network, and our day lodge (currently limited use due to pandemic) – which you are welcome to use. An outhouse is located by treeline in the stadium, adjacent to the parking lot, for use when the lodge is closed.
Backcountry User Fees
- $6 per vehicle/day
- $30 per vehicle for a Backcountry Annual Pass* (Includes tax)
*Note: Backcountry day tickets and annual passes do not include cross-country skiing trail use. Cross-country skiing season memberships (above) include backcountry use.
The Fingers, Burnt Nob and upper Mt. Macpherson are accessible via the Nordic Main Loop and Mountain Climb trails. These backcountry areas are in avalanche terrain and outside the club’s User Agreement area. All backcountry users visiting these areas will need backcountry travel knowledge and gear and should check the forecast at avalanche.ca.
Ascending and descending, backcountry users should only use Main Loop and Mountain Climb trails, keeping inside the wanded area where applicable. Those backcountry users travelling with a dog must have it on a leash at all times while in the Nordic area – ascending AND descending. If you travel on any other trails, use the dog loop, or visit the Ole Sandberg Cabin you must purchase a trail pass ($15) for each member in your party.
A fee is required to help cover costs associated with maintaining the parking lot and our day lodge (currently limited use due to pandemic) – which you are welcome to use. An outhouse is located by treeline in the stadium, adjacent to the parking lot, for use when the lodge is closed.
In cases of legitimate health issues or unforeseeable circumstances to one of the clubs’ members a partial refund of their season pass will be considered under the following circumstances:
1. That the member is operating with an element of good will,
2. That the member is able to supply a medical note from a medical doctor,
or a reasonable explanation of the unforeseeable circumstances they face.
The Lodge Manager will issue a pro rated amount of the season pass up until December 15th, and then no refunds after that date. The refund will include the season’s pass amount only and not the CCBC insurance or the taxes/zone4 fees portion that was paid.
Where does your money go?
Funds generated by the club are used to operate, maintain, and replace its assets. We recently purchased a brand new groomer to keep our extensive trail network in top-notch condition. We have also updated our rental fleet recently to encourage more people to enjoy our winter outdoors. In the summer of 2022 we completed trail maintenance work to help with drainage, overhead hazards, and trail surfaces. We hope you appreciate the conditions and the facilities provided by RNSC.
We would also like to mention that the activities undertaken by the club, including trail grooming, maintaining our parking lot, trail maintenance, and machine maintenance are largely accomplished through the volunteer time of its members. Thank you!
Paying your fees helps us build and maintain our club, and it honours the efforts of our volunteers and the commitments of our members.
