Pick up your free Discovery Pass anytime in 2017 by visiting the Visitor Centre in Waskesiu or ordering online at pc.gc./ca/PrinceAlbert. This free pass covers entry into Parks Canada locations; regular fees apply for camping, fishing licenses, and at private businesses (including equipment rentals).

Take advantage of this free pass and explore the park in a new season; we are open year-round and offer a variety of experiences in every season!

Ski Trail Update: The Waskesiu Lake Cross-country Ski Club has been hard at work grooming cross-country ski trails in the park. Most townsite trails were groomed late last month. Insufficient snow coverage on narrower trails has meant that the Fisher and Crean trails have not yet been groomed. Ski trail conditions will be updated regularly on the Chamber of Commerce website.

The attached map shows townsite cross-country ski trails:

Skis, snowshoes, and strollers with ski attachments can be borrowed for free at the Hawood Inn in Waskesiu.
