Barriere Lake Ski Trails

Area Description

The Barriere Lakes Ski Trails are moderate trails in a pristine wilderness setting that borders on the Barriere River. The trails are located in the Barriere Forks Regional Park. A warming hut is available to skiers for day use. The cross country ski track is set from December to March for classic and skate skiing.


From Barriere, travel up the Barriere Lakes Road which branches to the right from the Barriere Secondary School if travelling from the town centre.

If travelling from Highway 5, go down the Barriere Town Road and pass by the High School on the right and go straight at the intersection, which leads to the Barriere Lakes. Travel up the Barriere Lakes road for approximately 14.5 km. Watch for signs indicating the ski trail on the right hand side of the road. A good parking area is available where visitors can leave their vehicles and begin their ski.

Note: Barriere Lake Trails are also commonly used as hiking trails in spring/summer.
