Sleeping Giant Provincial Park
Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, the home of the Sleeping Giant Loppet, offers some of the greatest skiing you will find anywhere – period! The park is situated on a large peninsula of land, the Sibley Peninsula and is blessed with snowfalls that are usually a lot heavier then you will find in town. So on those days that the snow is falling lightly in town you can be assured that Sleeping Giant is getting more than its fair share.
The Park is situated approximately 75 kms to the east of Thunder Bay on HWY 11/17, but the drive is worth it! Not only do you get some of the best snow and grooming in the region, the trails are nicely sheltered by huge stands of evergreen trees. Even on a cold day you will find some of the most comfortable skiing conditions – no wind and plenty of sunshine!. Regular trips to Sleeping Giant Park are a must during the winter!
The Park features picturesque and challenging trails, but is also a place for a relaxing, easy outings. Whether you are skate or classic skiing, the trails are wide enough to enjoy a brisk ski and a friendly conversation at the same time. Many folks often wait to ski Sleeping Giant closer to the Sleeping Giant Loppet, but be assured conditions are great all throughout the winter. The Visitor’s Centre at Marie Louise Lake is closed in the winter except on the Monday of the Family Day Weekend and on Saturday & Sunday of Loppet Weekend, a great place to warm-up après ski!
