2020/2021 COVID UPDATES: Trails will be open and lessons will continue this winter with modifications to satisfy the latest and most current AHS recommendations. The City of St. Albert Kingswood Shelter will be open with reduced hours but its use is discouraged as a gathering and warm-up space. The use of masks is encouraged during lessons or when 2m distancing isn't possible.


The St. Albert Nordic Ski Club (SANSC) is a family oriented nordic ski club that offers a variety of youth programs, adult lessons, ski touring adventures, and fun social activities. Many dedicated club volunteers also maintain St. Albert’s best nordic ski trails at Kingswood Park and River Lot 56.


Sign yourself up for an adult lesson or tour, sign your children up for one of our excellent youth programs, or get everyone involved in this healthy and fun winter activity.


The club's purposes include:

  • to promote and facilitate cross-country skiing;

  • to maintain and groom trails in and near St. Albert for the use of all skiers;

  • to provide recreational, instructional, and racing programs;

  • bring together a diverse mixture of people to enjoy cross country skiing.

SANSC Code of Etiquette:

  • Respect set tracks (two grooves). Do not skate ski, cross, or walk on them.

  • Yield right of way to a skier approaching downhill or from behind and calling "Track".

  • Never stop at the bottom of a hill or on a blind corner.

  • Smile, have fun, and greet other skiers.
