ABOUT ENSC

Founded in 1978, the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club is now one of Canada’s largest nordic ski clubs with almost 650 members.

Over the past 20 years, the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club has developed the trail system in Goldbar and Goldstick parks. The two adjoining parks feature 10 kilometres of interconnected, illuminated ski trails ranging from the very easy to the more challenging, and now with snowmaking.
