WLCCSC COVID-19 Plan (updated for 2022-2023)

While dangers of Covid infection have decreased it is still very much present in our community. In order to preserve our programs and protect our volunteers we are currently still asking our members and visitors to abide by the following (subject to change depending on PHO guidelines):

  • Sign in every time you ski. This applies to all members and visitors.  This is required for contact tracing.
  • Complete the health self-assessment tool before you arrive. Please do not come to Bull Mountain if you are unwell.
  • Leave your belongings – snack, change of boots, etc – in your vehicle for now . We cannot use the warming hut at this point in our construction phase and the lodge is not yet completed.
  • Ensure you have signed the participant agreement if you are a day-use skier. The participant agreement is located with the daily sign-in sheet at the hill. This is a requirement regardless of Covid.
  • Please adhere to the maximum occupancy limits posted outside each of our buildings.
  • Masks are no longer mandatory but are recommended inside our buildings.  We recommend you bring your own hand sanitizer.
  • Outdoors is safest, but please respect physical distancing whether you are in one of the buildings, in the parking lot, or skiing the trails.

 

Williams Lake XC Ski Club & the Bull Mountain XC Ski & Snowshoe Area

Reminders

The switch for the night lighting system is still in the old warming hut.  Access is by foot (no skiing).
Ski and snowshoe trails are accessed from the new main parking lot.

See What’s Happening and Notice Board for other updates.

The Williams Lake Cross-Country Ski Club is partnered with Recreation Sites and Trails BC (Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations) and maintains and operates the Bull Mountain Cross-Country Ski & Snowshoe area, which is located about 16 km north of Williams Lake in the central Cariboo region of British Columbia. The Bull Mountain trail network includes 28 km of well-groomed trails and cross trails.  It was the site of the 2002 BC Winter Games cross-country skiing competitions. Enjoy the great skiing here with an annual club membership or day-use fee.

Our Ski Trails

Whether you are wishing for a gentle ski alongside the bog, or a social afternoon with friends on undulating trails, or the challenge of a long climb (with 125 m elevation gain) and some steep downhill sections, the variety in the 28 km of trails at Bull Mountain allows you to choose routes that suit you best.

Park in our large lot, then head up past the warming hut to check the large trail map and thermometer near the fire pit, and head out to enjoy the trails!

You can find the trails on the Trailforks app or use the trail signs and maps located at each trail intersection.  We groom both skate and classic tracks on our trails.

Our gate is open all winter, so come out day or night – we have 3.5 km of lit trails available until 10 pm every night, or just bring your headlamp!

Our snowshoe trails

Our four snowshoe trails, totalling 11 km, wind through the trees, occasionally crossing the ski trails and offering both climbs and gentle routes.  Dogs are welcome on the snowshoe trails, but please leash them when crossing ski trails.

 

Our dog trails – EXpanded!

Our dog trails are signed at the parking lot and new signage has been placed at the trail junctions.  You are welcome to bring up to two dogs per skier.  Information regarding skiing with your dog is posted at the parking lot and in our dog use policy.  Our second parking lot (enter main parking lot then connect to it by turning right) gives you direct access to the dog trails.

We now have approximately 5 km of designated dog trails with a newly added section of good uphill and downhill.

Please respect those skiing without pets.
