Are you up to the 49 on 49 ski challenge?


The Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club has launched a New year’s challenge to the community – 49 kms on the 49th Parallel.

For January 2021, challenge yourself, friends and family to complete 49 kms on the ski and snowshoe trails.

Registration forms are available at the chalet in the sign in box. Registration is free for members and $10 for non-members. Payment and registration forms can be placed into the donation box at the door.

All registrants will be entered into draws for prizes.

Be sure to take a selfie out on the trail so the Club can post it to its Facebook page.

The club is soliciting prizes for this event and a virtual loppet in February. If you wish to donate or have suggestions for prizes, or have any questions about the January challenge or February Loppett, e-mail

The Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club is located east of Fort Frances. Turn onto George Armstrong Road and follow the Rocky Inlet Road sign. It has 15 km of groomed skate and classic tracks and 5 km or snowshoe trails. Rental equipment is available.

Please follow all COVID-19 guidelines posted at the chalet.
