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 $23.
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.
TRAIL UPDATE (4/29/19): Closed for the season
Trail maps are available at Guest Services. Snowshoes are also allowed on the trails, although Great Bear does not have snowshoe rentals. Great Bear does not make snow on the cross country trails and there are no lights for nighttime use.
