Stokely/Aglgoma Highlands is of the four largest Nordic ski areas in North America. Also very snowy…200 inches of lake-effect snowfall. The trail systems were created and are maintained by a partnership between Stokely Creek and the Algoma Highlands Conservancy. Snowshoe and ski rentals available on premises.
130 km are groomed for classic and skating ski styles, but there are many more kilometres of sometimes groomed but well-signed trails as well. Ski to ice-covered lakes, enjoying the pristine silence and the snow-draped evergreens. Stay on the flats, or climb as high as King Mountain's 1880 foot vertical. View trail map.
Enjoy some of the most challenging snowshoe trails in the area. Try the 15km King Mountain Trail or if you would just like to test your snowshoeing skills, you can enjoy the 2km Otter's Trail. View a description of snowshoeing trails.

I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful boxed lunches. It is because of the generosity of our sponsors, like Algoma’s Water Tower Inn & Suites, that the tournament does so well. People really appreciate the special touches and as such they continue to come back which is fantastic for the university and the students who benefit from the funds raised.- Bev Teller, Algoma University Golf Tournament
