Located on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Dakota Ridge is an ideal winter destination for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

The Dakota Ridge Recreation Area offers world-class cross country skiing and snowshoeing on BC's Sunshine Coast, and is only a short 40 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. Dakota Ridge maintains 20 km of track-set cross country ski trails (classic and skate) and 7 km of snowshoe trails that wind through old growth forests and open areas in a beautiful subalpine setting.

Amazing views of the Coast Mountains, Vancouver Island, and Georgia Straight capture the magic of the Sunshine Coast. Dakota Ridge is accessed by 13 km of maintained 4-wheel drive forest service road.

The operations of the Dakota Ridge Winter Recreation Area are managed by the Sunshine Coast Regional District.

DAKOTA RIDGE IS OPEN- CONDITIONS ARE EXCELLENT. For updated information please contact the SCRD.
