|Primary||Dolomite, limestone, siltstone|
|Named for||Winterburn, Edmonton|
|Named by||Imperial Oil Limited, 1950|
The Winterburn Group is composed of silty dolomite, evaporite, argillaceous limestone, red and green siltstone, anhydrite, silty dolomite and siltstone. Pinnacle reefs develop in the Nisku Formation. 
The Winterburn Group reaches a maximum thickness of 150 metres (490 ft) west of the Leduc reef system. In central Alberta it is 30 to 70m thick. It thins out over the Peace River Arch, and disappears in north-eastern British Columbia.
The Winterburn Group is composed, from bottom to top, of the Nisku, Calmar and Graminia Formations. The Graminia Formation includes the carbonate Blue Ridge Member west of the Rimbey-Meadowbrook reef trend.
