Boundary Trails Nordic Club
Burwalde Woods is the main facility used by the club, including the Jackrabbits. There are trails for both classic and skate skiing. Club membership fees support the operation and maintenance of these trails. Burwalde Trails is located between Morden and Winkler, three miles north of junction Hwy 3 and Hwy 14 or nine miles south of Hwy 23 (west of Hwy). The main trailhead is accessed from the Froese’s yard (home of Burwalde Woods Honey). There is limited parking space; please park tightly so there will be room for others. A donation box is located at the trailhead for non-members to contribute
Shannondale is located a mile north of Thornhill which is 5 miles west of Morden. Situated in a valley, these trails wind through the forest providing magnificent scenery. Dave Lumgair, the proprietor, builder, and maintainer of these trails encourages skiers of all levels to come and enjoy. The trails offer a range of technical difficulty from easy (Yellow or Green trails) to very challenging (Orange skate trail). The Blue trail is a fantastic midlevel classic run that is a favourite among many. The two chalets, one at the trail head and one in the valley are normally kept warm on the weekends. Trail upkeep is supported by donations which can be left in the donation box at the trailhead. For more information regarding trailing conditions call Dave Lumgair at 204-822-3735 or send him an email.
