News and Announcements

Register for the 2020-2021 season!

Registration is now open for both our PURDEN BASED PROGRAMS: Purden Nancy Greene (U6, U8, U10, U12) as well as our Alpine Programs (U12E, U14, U16, U18) For the Nancy Greene program we have both one day and two day programs available and our full program includes an evening at the Hart.

We will be opening our registration for the Hart Program on October 15th for returning families and October 22nd for new families. This year we will be accepting U8, U10 and U12 athletes at the Hart. (we will waitlist and consider U6 athletes on an individual basis this year due to parents not being permitted to stay on site due to pandemic restrictions)

As you are aware Hart spaces fill up quickly but we have lots of capacity in our Purden programs and really encourage families to consider this option as the diversity of terrain, coaching to athlete ratio, and the additional time on snow including full days that the Purden program offers really makes a huge difference in the rate of progress the athletes experience.

Troll is home to 1,729 vertical feet of elevation and a perfect spot for speed demons that take advantage of the resort’s ski racing. The longest run is six kms.

You’ll also find plenty of cruiser terrain at Troll Resort, perfect for young families, and intermediates. The family-run resort gets some awesome snow, and it’s easy to spend a whole day here exploring.

You’re likely get to hear live music in the day lodge which only adds to the cozy ambiance while you’re having lunch, or putting your ski boots up during apres ski. It’s just one of the ways that the resort adds a local flavour to your skiing experience.

Bet you’ve never seen a dog sled team delivering mail before. Well you can in Quesnel, during the annual Gold Rush Trail Sled Dog Mail Run. Once a year. mushers and their fleet of huskies participate in the mail run, a fun event for the whole family, and a celebration of the history of the area.

When the sun shines at Troll Resort, it’s tough to beat. Local pro tip: Skies are typically clearer in the mornings which means getting out the door early to get in some sweet runs while you soak up a little Vitamin D.

Don’t pass up the deliciousness of the famed locally made cinnamon buns at Troll. A little dose of sugar will keep you going on all morning. But the soups and the burgers are excellent, too. We were blown away by the quality of the food that the small team in the kitchen puts out. Because you know, half the fun of skiing is re-fueling in the day lodge with your friends.

When You Go

Book your stay onsite at Troll through the AirBnB listing. But if you are looking to accommodate a bigger group, keep in mind Quesnel is only 40 mins down the road.

Quesnel is home to a bounty of Nordic ski, fat biking and snowshoe trails, uncovered in this recent Gold City story.

Troll Ski Resort is a happening place less then a two hours drive from Prince George Airport, home to increased WestJet service through this winter via WestJet link.

You’ll find endless fresh turns that will rock your world at Murray Ridge in Fort St. James, B.C. The bonus is there are no lift lines and by the end of the day your legs will be pumping from all the vertical. Trust that those snowy stashes aren’t going anywhere but be sure to leave early from home to get as many fresh tracks in as possible. This is the winter to seize the moment.

You won’t be disappointed with the groomers either. The run that goes right to the lodge door is pretty sweet, making it easy to pop in for lunch or après ski. We definitely recommend the poutine for fueling the rest of your day on the slopes.

The scenery is beautiful with stands of trees encompassing the ridge. And, if you’re a glade skier, you’ll be in your glory with the prime conditions on Zeek’s Ridge. The endless, fresh pow turns will have you grinning from tree to tree.

Richard Haslinger is the man who got the wheels turning at Murray Ridge in the ‘70s. He was a special person who brought the local community together to volunteer and donate their time to build the resort.

Without Haslinger’s hard work and dedication, the ridge wouldn’t be where it is today. Unfortunately, he passed away this summer, but his legacy carries on throughout the community, and his contributions are remembered by many.

The views of the lakes atop Murray Ridge will leave you awe-struck. And the vast landscapes will inspired to seek out more adventures, not just in winter, but in every season The surrounding region is a playground for all kinds of outdoor activities.
