Cross-Country Skiing - Cross Country Ski Trails

In the Cross-Country Skiing section you will find everything from groomed cross-country ski trails at Nordic ski areas and sno-parks to backcountry cross-country ski expeditions using ski huts, yurts, and cabins in hut-to-hut ski touring systems. We have something for cross country skiers of all experience levels and styles, both traditional XC skiing and skate skiing. Each cross-country skiing trip is a complete chapter from a cross-country skiing guidebook and includes a detailed trail map, driving directions to the trailhead, and a clear description of the route, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. The cross-country ski trails are linked to specific USGS topographic maps from the trail overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like route photos, trail elevation profiles, regional locator maps, and seasonal snow coverage information. To find a great cross-country ski trail for you, just click below on any cross-country skiing section. Then browse by selecting a specific region or “Top Trail” from the list, or by simply clicking on the interactive state map.
