Wye Marsh: From Skiing To Sweetwater

From Skiing to Sweetwater – there’s always something to do at Wye Marsh!

Skiers at Wye MarshCan you feel the warmth in the air? Well, the relative warmth? So can nature! This is an exciting time of the year as wildlife begins to stir, bloom, and thaw. It’s the time of year for milder temperatures, bluebird days, and spectacular cross-country ski conditions. Wye Marsh’s 25km of ski trails are groomed and ready for you to explore!

Most people are aware of the tremendous nature-oriented programs provided by the Wye Marsh but are not aware of the excellent cross country skiing available – with trail difficulties for all abilities of skiers. Cross-country skiing is a great way to explore further into Wye Marsh. You’ll be sure to be followed by chickadees, discover animal tracks, and maybe you’ll even spot the Barred Owl that has been sighted on the trails!
