The Whiteway

The Lake Windermere Whiteway is located in the beautiful Columbia Valley in British Columbia, Canada. In 2014, the Whiteway won the world record for the longest skating trail boasting over 30 KM of ice-skating as well as groomed skate and classic ski trails. The Whiteway offers winter sports enthusiasts an incredible facility, adding to the already abundant list of winter activities available in the stunning Columbia Valley on the warm side of the Rockies.The Whiteway was born from the efforts of a few dedicated locals and came to fruition in 2006 by the Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club. The initial intention of the Whiteway was to connect via an ice trail the communities along Lake Windermere during the winter months. It offers 3 access points: one at Kinsmen beach in Invermere, one at the Invermere Bay Condos in Invermere, and one at Windermere beach in Windermere.

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 only 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 for purchase at the Guinness World Record win this winter!
