Kane Valley: The turnoff to Kane Valley Ski Trails is 20 minutes south of Merritt, near Corbett Lake. Kane Valley Ski Trails total 50km/31mi in length, 40km/24mi of which are groomed for cross-country skiing by the Nicola Nordic Ski Club. There are plenty of single-track trails, and some double track and skating lanes. Trails range from easy to difficult.
The Logan Lake Ski Trail System begins in the community – at the end of Chartrand Ave - and extends out into the surrounding wilderness. Thirty-eight kilometers of trails are groomed for both classic and skating techniques. The ski season usually starts in the first week of December and continues through March.
