Shannondale is located a mile north of Thornhill which is 5 miles west of Morden. Situated in a valley, these trails wind through the forest providing magnificent scenery. Dave Lumgair, the proprietor, builder, and maintainer of these trails encourages skiers of all levels to come and enjoy. The trails offer a range of technical difficulty from easy (Yellow or Green trails) to very challenging (Orange skate trail). The Blue trail is a fantastic midlevel classic run that is a favourite among many. The two chalets, one at the trail head and one in the valley are normally kept warm on the weekends. Trail upkeep is supported by donations which can be left in the donation box at the trailhead.
Here’s a video of what it’s like to ski at Shannondale while being pulled by dogs!

Hello there just wondering if your ski trails open and do you guys have rental equipment available?
Is it okay if we walk on the trail routes before there is enough snow for grooming for skiing?
Notice dogs in the video and done pictures. We are teaching our dog to skjor. Which Trax is that allowed out at Shannondale?
Thanks for the hospitality yesterday Dave, we had a stellar day on your beautifully groomed trails.
Dave….looking forward to seeing you…Any snow yet?
