With temperatures dropping and snow surely within sight (sorry not sorry!) membership registration is open for the 2023/2024 season! You can sign up here and get early bird pricing until Nov. 5 — the day after our annual Snow Show, we’ll have more details on that event soon. Looking forward to seeing everyone out on the trails!
Thank you to everyone to participated in the 2023 Yellowknife Gold Loppet! We had 470 registrants! Our biggest loppet ever! By all accounts it was a huge success, thanks in large part to our volunteers and sponsors!

Due to Mother Nature, only U14 and older were able to race in the Yk Ski Races today, but a great time was still had by all! Click here for race results!
From a parade ski, to 100m sprints to cookie medals for all racers, everyone enjoyed themselves.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers, without you, there would be no ski races!
The 2023 Yellowknife Gold Loppet, sponsored by Gold Terra is Sunday, April 2, 2023. Click here to register!
The Yellowknife Gold Loppet is a non-race event for skiers of all ages and abilities. Skiers can choose from 4km, 15km and 25km distances, and enjoy homemade chili and bread from Sundog Trading Post at the Yellowknife Ski Club chalet afterwards. The event begins at the Vee Lake boat launch.
The sun is back, the snow is fast, and spring skiing is here! There is still loads of time left to enjoy the best time of year! Become a member of the Yellowknife Ski Club and enjoy our fabulous trails, free use of our chalet and bask in that spring sun.
