Local ski trails are being recognized.
At the Cross Country Alberta’s annual general meeting, the Strathcona Wilderness Centre was presented with the 2017 to 2018 Outstanding Ski Area Operations of the Year award.
"We haven't had great snow conditions for several winters, it's a lot of hard work. We have some of the best programs out here for skiing," said Bjorn Taylor, services specialist at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre. "Our instructors and staff keep the programs running even in adverse conditions."
The award acknowledges significant contributions to trails and facilities development and operations in cross-country skiing across the province. 
"I have a very small staff team, but we're like family and they treat all of our skiers like that as well," added Taylor.
The area near Ardrossan has quickly gained a reputation for world-class ski trails, a clean and inviting lodge and helpful staff.
Last year, they saw over 30,000 skiers.
