Atlin Ski Club - Trail Map
The loipes on this map
are maintained on a best effort basis. After new snow it will take a few
days to trackset everything again.
Also you will find part of the loipes obliterated by snowmobiles, snowshoe users and after strong winds. Atlin is a multiple user area. This is a fact of life, although we call upon our snowmobiling friends to not deliberately use the track set trails. In tight spots we recognize there is no other option.
Part of the trailsystem is traversing private property: we call upon all users to respect this fact and do not visit cabins and/or other buildings.
Always ski within your ability. Most of the trailsystem could be rated as flat to undulating and suitable for beginning skiers. See also the traildescription below the trailmap. There are a few steeper sections that will give beginners some difficulties. Use caution.
All use of this map is the user's own responsibility. We do not and cannot accept any responsibility for any mistakes on this map or any mishaps that might occur while using this map. It is provided solely to give the user some information about possible skitrips in the Atlin area.

Today January 03,
2017, most trails are not recommended for skiing due to the very thin snowcover.
Most trails have twigs and grass poking through.
Only the trail on the slough is good and the trails on the alkali are ski-able but only fairly.
The skating track is on the slough is OK.
