Family Snowshoe and Cross-Country Ski Program

Update: March 14th, 2022

The cross-country ski and snowshoe rental program is currently not operating due to lack of snow. 

The City of Mount Pearl provides free contactless snowshoe and cross-country ski rentals! Get outside and enjoy the beautiful trails around Power’s Pond with friends and family.


Power’s Pond Boat House (Enter from Clyde Avenue)


Open daily from 12:30pm to 8pm until March 31, 2022 (Weather permitting)

Please note, days of operation are weather dependent and based on snow cover. Please call the info line at 709-764-7635 for updated facility operations during hours of operation.


The snowshoes, skis, and two adaptable sleds are FREE to rent!

The rental period is 2 hours per person (participants may utilize equipment as a bubble and one must be an adult).

Note we have limited quantities available and they will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

Both kids and adult sizes available, or bring along your own!


Throughout the winter months, the city grooms areas of its trail system for walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Groomed trails are highlighted in red and can be found here: Winter groomed trail map.
