  • Canada Games or not, any HRM park can be used for cross-country skiing.

The snow in Halifax rarely piles up much, but walking trails at any HRM parks can be used for cross-country skiing; a city employee recommends the former railway lines at the Musquodoboit Trailway and the Timberlea trails. Martock is the official Winter Games venue, and has cross-country programs offered for adults and kids (see also Biathlon). A Saturday morning learn-to-ski program is offered from January 8 to March 12, for $80; the biathlon program runs Saturday afternoons for the same dates and cost. A trail pass is $21 daily, $39.95 with equipment rental, or $159.95 for a season pass. Wentworth has cross-country skiing as well, at the top of the mountain and accessed by chairlift, for the intermediate to advanced skier.

Trails in HRM, 490-4000, halifax.ca/rec/TrailsHrm.html. Wentworth, 14595 Route 4, Wentworth Valley, 902-548-2089, skiwentworth.ca. Martock, 370 Ski Martock Road, Windsor, 902-798-9501, martock.com
