The Cross Country center features 80km of groomed trails at 7,800 feet offering the most spectacular scenery and exciting terrain in the west.  Located 1/4 mile east of Kirkwood on Hwy 88 (next to the Kirkwood Inn) and nestled in a beautiful Alpine Valley,the diverse terrain offers excellent skiing for all abilities. Bring your four legged friend along too – dogs are allowed on two trails, the High Trail located behind the Kirkwood Inn and the Outer Loop on the meadow.

Many trails feature interpretive signs providing for a more enlightening and meaningful visit. The “Kiddy Kilometer” is sure to keep the youngest skiers engaged –  this one kilometer loop lined with life size animal cut outs and flip up signs.
