Penstock Loop Snowshoe

We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed. For more details on our response to COVID-19 please click this banner.

When this trail was originally built, it traversed alongside its namesake, the Pocaterra Penstock, which has since been upgraded and buried underground. Interesting historical features like the Kent Creek sluiceway and still visible and it provides nice views of the Opal Range.

Visitors are asked to purchase a day or season parking pass from Nordiq Alberta to use the trails. Revenue from the sales will cover the costs of trail grooming and maintenance. It’s $10 for a day pass or $50 for the season.
