Birch Pass – how to purchase

Information on the Birch Pass and Where to Mountain bike in Manitoba can be found in the Mountain bike section under the disciplines tab.

The Birch Ski Area is located approximately 45 km south of Portage La Prairie or 115 km south-west of Winnipeg. The trails can be located by following the “Birch Ski Area” signs west of Roseisle on Highway 245.  Continue 1 mile west of Roseisle on highway 245, 2 miles south then one-half west mile into the Birch parking lot.

Birch is situated on the edge of the Manitoba Escarpment, which offers a wide range of gully and valley terrain that provides exceptional scenery and challenging riding.   Birch has over 40 km of single track cycling and double track cross country ski trails for intermediate to expert riders.  Some trails have steep ascents/descents.  The site is well drained and dries quickly after a rain. Trail maps are located in the upper and lower parking lots as well as along trails.

Birch is privately owned and is leased to the Junk Yard Dogs Cycling Club.  All riders are required to have a

  1. Manitoba Cycling Association General Membership or racing license, and
  2. Birch Trail Pass or Junk Yard Dogs Cycling Club membership.
