River Bend has beautiful new trails that have been designed for the enjoyment of all skiers – making the hills more accessible and safer for a wide variety of skills. They will be show cased nationally at the international regional ski races to be held here in January 2018 and the Canada Winter Games ski and biathlon races in February and March of 2019.
Volunteer here for the combined Haywood NorAm Western Canadian Championships and Alberta Cup races at River Bend this January.
Watch this page as the snow flies to get up to date trail conditions.
