Ski, snowboard or snowshoe, White Hills Resort is the place to get fit and keep active this winter season. Just one kilometre (.6 mile) west of Clarenville, NL, you'll find the best part of winter is just an easy ride away. We have expanded our services once again, and opened new attractions and terrain perfectly suited for every member of your family. Run to the hills and discover the excitement today!
Nestled across 22 hectares (55 acres) of ski and board terrain in the majestic hills of the Discovery Region, White Hills Resort has the proud distinction of being called "Eastern Newfoundland's Winter Playground." Remarkably short lift lines plus our dedicated staff combine to make our resort more beginner friendly, ensuring first time visits are even more pleasurable. Relax and enjoy a meal in our fully licensed restaurant, or sip a hot drink from our bar while watching the sun set over some of the best groomed trails in Atlantic Canada. Have a great time this season and bring the whole family or invite your staff and co-workers out for a brisk day of winter entertainment.
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE!
We offer a variety of downhill trails and glades that reach to over 750 vertical feet, as well as over 40 km (25 mi) of the best cross-country trails in Newfoundland spread from the base of the resort. Our Bombardier BR-275 grooming machine and our increased snow production of 85% coverage provides patrons with a satisfying riding experience second to none.
Want the freshest powder? Think you can handle riding through the back country? Our Glade Trails are open to the public and the more experienced among you can take advantage of our backwoods trails. Cliff drops, chutes, and steeps await as you make your own way down the mountain. Ungroomed and unpatrolled, riders who use our glades do so at their own risk.
Nordic Ski Trails
All cross-country trails and loops are marked, interconnected, and groomed where possible. White Hills Resort features "Harry’s Loop" (3.5 km, or 2.1 mi) around Dark Hole Pond as well as 5 km (3.1 mi) and 7.5 km (4.6 mi) loops for an extended journey. All trails are color-coded Blue.
Non-members must purchase a Nordic Ski day pass, while members of the Clarenville Nordic Ski Club can ski on all of the groomed trails free of charge.
In addition to the White Hills Nordic Trails, the Club have developed and maintain a number of loops and trails which combine to a distance of over 40 km. Please see their website for a more detailed map and trail descriptions.
SnowShoe Adventure Trails
Our first SnowShoe Adventure Trail runs approximately 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) through the scenic wilderness around White Hills Resort, intersecting with our Nordic Ski Trails. Come and witness first-hand the calm hush of winter and untouched natural splendor of eastern Newfoundland's Discovery Region. Partially looping around the edge of Dark Hole Pond and returning through a woody glade, enjoy an afternoon with the whole family on a snowbound hike amidst the quiet flora and fauna of Winter's natural beauty.
Approximate Operating Season: Our opening date is weather dependent but we target for the earliest possible date after Boxing Day until the first weekend in April.
