Cross Country Skiing in the Fraser Valley

Cross country skiing is a great way to get away from it all, stay in shape and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Fraser Valley. There are loads of options for Nordic skiing in the Winter Park area.

Two world class cross country ski centers are located within 8 miles from the town of Winter Park both offer lessons and rentals as well as dog friendly ski loops. Devils Thumb Ranch Nordic Center and Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center,

If you are the more adventurous type, there are miles of trails, (mountain bike trails in the summer), within minutes from Winter Park and Fraser.  Stop by the Winter Park Visitor Center in downtown Winter Park for trail suggestions and access. Or, located in downtown Fraser, Ice Box Mountain Sports, rents cross country ski gear. The friendly shop owner and employees are always happy to provide information about trail access and routes.

If you just want to get out for a quick loop, cross country skiing is accessible right in town!  Grand Park, located west of Hwy 40 between Winter Park and Fraser grooms about 5 miles of trails in the meadow both for classic or skate skiing.  There is parking located conveniently adjacent to the trail. Or park on the north side of the Safeway Center in downtown Fraser and hop on the Fraser River Trail. You’ll be skiing along the Fraser River while enjoying spectacular views of and the Continental Divide and Byers Peak.
