Lake Windermere Whiteway
The world’s longest skating trail
The Whiteway was created in 2006 by the Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club. The Whiteway was developed to connect the communities along Lake Windermere during the winter months. It offers 2 access points: one at Kinsmen beach in Invermere and one at Windermere Beach.
In 2014 the Lake Windermere Whiteway was named the world’s longest skating trail by Guinness World Records. At over 30km in length, this multi-use trail offers ice-skating as well as groomed skate and classic cross-country ski trails. The Whiteway provides winter sports enthusiasts an incredible facility, adding to the already abundant list of winter activities available in the stunning Columbia Valley.
The Whiteway stays in world-class shape through each season thanks to maintenance performed by the Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club. The club asks for a small donation fee of $5 per use which can be deposited in the drop boxes at the information kiosks along the trail. Annual memberships allow for unlimited use of the Whiteway and are available at the Whiteway kiosks or at the Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club.
There is a $5 Whiteway Day Use fee or you can purchase annual Whiteway Passes – only $60 for individuals and $140 for families. All proceeds to the Toby Creek Nordic Club to help make outdoor recreation in the valley even better!
