Cross-Country Skiing


Cross-Country Skiing in Winter Park 

Beginner or expert,  Winter Park and Fraser have hundreds of miles/kilometers of trails to show you that downhill is not the only way to get around on skis. There are a variety of trails (groomed and ungroomed) that are snowshoe and cross-country friendly throughout Winter Park & Fraser.

We encourage you to stop by the Winter Park Information Center and grab maps of the area. Many of our trails within the Arapaho National Forest, which surrounds Winter Park and Fraser are pet-friendly.

Download the list of cross-country ski and snowshoeing trails and descriptions.  Check out Headwaters Trails Alliance's daily grooming report. Or, learn more about all things Nordic!
