Iqaluit

Snow Park & Club

Gateway to the Canadian Arctic

Located at the end of Frobisher Bay, Nunavut’s capital snow park begins with a protected cove easily accessible from the breakwater. Just ask the cab for the “Grind & Brew” and you will be there in less than a minute. It’s a great place to start your ride with friendly staff and great coffee. 

The spot often receives 20-40 km/h wind that gust up to 60km/h. Some good winds also come from the South before a storm. Once you get out of the protected cove, heading Southwest, you will start to feel the freedom and a true sense of grandeur of the territory. Imagine the pleasure of flying over this smooth white carpet with only the sound of the wind going through your helmet.  It’s a perfect introduction to the northern territory; white, wide, windy and wild.
