White Butte Trails Recreation Site
The White Butte Trails Recreation Site is located 20 minutes east of Regina and features 12.7 km of groomed skate and classic cross-country ski trails that are transformed into hiking and cycling trails after the snow melts. The area also boasts a 5-km, pet-friendly, hiking trail that is open year-round, two parking lots (one at each trailhead), two warm-up shelters and an outdoor pit toilet.
In partnership with the Regina Ski Club, the site's ten cross-country ski trails are groomed on a regular basis and include sections of gently rolling hills and treed landscapes. The beginner trails include the Aspen (0.7 km), Marsh (1.6 km), Meadow (0.2 km), Rose (0.8 km), Sage (0.8 km) and Willow (1.7 km). The Marsh trail is only open to classic skiers. The intermediate level trails (Butte (3.6 km), Cherry (1.3 km) and Snowberry (2 km)), include both classic and skate grooming.
Snowshoeing off-trail is permitted but please remember hikers, snowshoers, and pets are not allowed on the cross-country ski trails in the winter to protect the cross-country ski tracks. Hikers and snowshoers are asked to please stay on the pet-friendly trail and to access the trails from the southwest parking lot.
