Explore the quiet beauty of Great Bear Ski Valley on our 4-mile trail system of groomed, cross country trails. Cross country ski rentals are available for $26.
As one of the top Nordic sports, cross-country skiing involves the navigation of snow-covered terrain, most of which relies solely on your body’s own strength and stride rather than the gravity used when going downhill. For this reason, as well as others, cross-country skiing can be an excellent form of physical fitness.
