Skate/Classic Ski Trails

Skate/Classic ski trails are groomed in the winter season to accommodate skate skiing and classic skiing. These ski trails are approximately 16-feet wide with classic track set when possible on one side and the remaining area groomed to a corduroy finish. We typically groom either the evening prior or in the morning, conditions and weather dependent. Dog Trail and some of the trails to the North are now Fatbike and Dog-friendly (see the chart below). Please note that dogs MUST BE ON LEAST AT ALL TIMES. Fatbikers should be conscious of their speed and ride respectfully and under control, and PLEASE do not ride in or across the classic track grooves.

Snowshoe/Multi-Use Trails

Multi-Use/Snowshoe Trails are open to all users. Multi-use trails may be packed by a snowmobile to accommodate snow biking and will not be groomed for classic or skate skiing. Dogs may use all snowshoe/multi-use trails as well. Fat Bike tires must be a minimum of 3.8″ in width. Electric Fat bikes not permitted.
