Cross-country skiing

The cross-country ski loop is located at Chinook Winds Regional Park and is maintained by the Parks department. Tracks are set once there is enough snow to allow for use. It's open to the public from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day. Be sure to check the trail status for updates on the conditions of the trail.

On June 22, 2021, Council endorsed the use of legacy funds from the 2020 Alberta Winter Games to start an Airdrie Sport Council and develop a cross-country ski loop in partnership with the City. The Airdrie Sport Council purchased cross-country ski equipment using $18,222.94 of legacy funds from the 2020 Alberta Winter Games and a $15,677 Community Initiatives Program grant from the provincial government.

Legacy funding is a surplus from the games that includes funds raised from the community and public funds from the City and Province. The intent of legacy funds is to enhance further sport development in the community either through programs and initiatives or capital projects.
