Ski the Virtual Birkie at HylandBirkie partnership logo.

Hyland Lake Park Reserve has 9.5 miles of trails groomed daily for classic and skate skiing. Five miles of trails are lit and over three miles have snowmaking, which guarantees extended hours of skiing each day and a longer season. Check the trail conditions before you head out.

There are several days of high school championship racing the week of Feb. 20-26. The schedule will be posted on the trail conditions page and at Skinny Ski when available. We recommend avoiding skiing your virtual Birkie at Hyland during racing sessions. 

A daily or annual Three Rivers cross-country ski pass is required. Trails begin at the visitor center. Wear your Birkie race bib and no trail passes are required!

Registration is closed.
