- Syncline Trail Network has over 20 kilometres of packed and tracked ski trails between the South Castle and West Castle rivers from December 1 - April 30.
- Check the Live Grooming Report for dates of grooming.
- The scenic beauty of these trails extends through rolling landscapes of montane forests and meadows.
- Syncline parking areas have recently been upgraded, and will be maintained and plowed for the winter season.
- Snowshoeing is permitted anywhere in the Castle Parks unless otherwise posted.
- Snowshoeing is permitted on the Syncline Trail Network December 1 - April 30, please keep to the side of the groomed ski tracks.
Fatbiking is permitted on all designated snowmobile trails within Castle Provincial Park and Castle Wildland Provincial Park.
Please review the following guidelines before your ride:
- Stay on designated trails unless otherwise posted.
- Wear a helmet. Snow is soft but trees are still hard!
- Fat bikers must yield to skiers and snowshoers.
- Ride on the firmest part of the track.
- Only ride when temperatures are below zero, otherwise trail damage could occur.
- Only “fat bikes” (with tires measuring 3.7 inches wide or wider) are permitted. Bikes with regular mountain bike tires are not permitted as narrow tires are more likely to leave deep ruts in groomed trails.
- Keep tire pressure low, ideally below 10 psi.
- Ride single file and be courteous of other users.
- Ride prepared. Bring extra layers, and pack food and water.
- Be an ambassador for the sport: stay polite, educate other riders, discourage bad behavior and follow the rules.
- Random Ride Areas for snowmobiles (as shown on the map) are permitted as in previous years. Use at your own risk.
- Camping amenities are closed for the winter season. Please visit Reserve Alberta Parks to book your summer camping experience! Nearby Beauvais Lake Provincial Park campground has first come first served winter camping.
