Whether you wish for a gentle ski alongside the bog, a social afternoon with friends on undulating trails, or the challenge of a long climb (with 125 m elevation gain) followed by exciting 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, walk a few steps to our warming hut where you can sign in (mandatory) and gear up, check the large trail map and thermometer near the fire pit, and head out to enjoy the trails!
You’ll appreciate our trail signs and maps located at each trail intersection and can now also check your location and see a map on Trailforks. We groom both skating and classic tracks.
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, totaling 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.
Please do not snowshoe on ski trails except at designated crossings.
Our dog trails
We now have approximately 5 km of designated dog trails. The dog trails are clearly signed at the parking lot and 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 the 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.
