Membership & Fees

Our non-profit club depends on membership and day-use fees to cover trail grooming costs and to support the maintenance of our incredible trail network and user facilities. Club membership offers great value:

  • Unlimited use of all our ski trails and facilities for the winter season
  • Newsletters that inform members of club activities
  • Discounts off day-use fees at the Blackjack Ski Club and Nelson Nordic Ski Club

Use of Groomed Trails

Our trail network is not designed for snowshoeing and we currently have no established snowshoe trails. If you plan to snowshoe within the Paulson Ski Trails recreation area, we request that you stay off the groomed trails, travel adjacent to track-set trails and that trail crossings be infrequent and avoid disturbing the tracks set for classic and skate skiing.

If you happen to use our cabins or other facilities we would greatly appreciate a donation towards their maintenance. Thank you!

Please note that dogs are not allowed within the ski area.
