Skiing with a Dog

The Bulkley Valley Nordic Centre has 11 kilometres of dog-friendly ski trails, groomed for classic and skate skiing.  Dog trails are accessible from the lower parking lot via a tunnel. Dogs are not allowed on other Nordic Centre trails, the upper parking lot or in buildings

Dog trails:

  • Pooch Paradise 4.6 km
  • Hound Heaven 2.3 km
  • The Pup  0.5 km
  • Wild Dog 3.3 km
  • Connecting trails to lower parking 0.3 km

You and 1 or 2 dogs are welcome to ski the dog trails provided you agree to the following:

  • Dogs must be on leash in the lower parking lot and until after the tunnel.
  • Dogs can be off-leash after the tunnel if you keep your dog in sight and in control (i.e. trained to be quickly recalled to prevent unwanted interactions with others). 
  • Dog owners are fully responsible for any incident involving their dog(s).
  • Skiers with dogs must ski in the direction posted. One-way dog traffic is designed to reduce confrontations.Skiers without dogs are allowed to ski either direction.
  • Skiers with dogs must remove their dog’s waste from trails; either take it home in a bag or flick unbagged poop into the bush. Keep our trails pleasant, please flick neglected poop too.
    Tip from a dog owner: use a bag to pick up and toss the poop off the trail. Keep the bag, tie it clean side out and take it home.
