The Links at Brunello
Snowbowl and Driving Range: Beginner Friendly, easy terrain.
Cart Paths: Intermediate/Advanced Skiers only. Front Nine Loop is 5 km and many hills and sharp turns to navigate.
Halifax Nordic Ski Club is delighted to partner with The Links at Brunello to groom their golf course trails, whenever snow conditions permit. Club members and Brunello Estate residents are welcome to ski on the trails. The club-house and facilities (washrooms, food and bar service) are available when the Pro Shop (not in 2021 due to COVID) is open – please introduce yourselves as Club members.
Directions The Links at Brunello are 10 minutes from the Halifax peninsula, just off Exit #3 on Hwy. 103. Take Timberlea Village Parkway for 1.6 km., then turn left on Brunello Blvd. The parking lot is at the end of Brunello Blvd. The parking lot will close at 5 or 6 pm most evenings – check at the Pro Shop before leaving your vehicle after dusk.
The Trails This trail is groomed for skate skiing. Classic skiers are welcome as well but the trails are not wide enough for a classic track. Always stay on the groomed trails. Skiing on the fairways is not permitted. Please don’t cut across the fairways at any point. We are Brunello’s guests and want to avoid any damage to their greens, fairways or tee-boxes.
The Cart Paths
The cart paths are groomed by Brunello when there is enough snow. There are two cart paths, Front Nine for skiing and Back Nine for walkers. The Front Nine is a 5 km loop and for Advanced/Intermediate skiers. The cart paths are a paved pathway, they require more snow to be skiable and are thus the place the conditions deteriorate the quickest. The Back nine is often wind swept and meant for walkers as it is only good after a BIG snow fall. Do not ski off the cart paths onto the golfing fairways. That is not part of the arrangement that we have with Brunello.
