Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing


Opportunities for cross-country skiers and snowshoers range from open, level meadows near the visitor center to extreme terrain in the wilderness backcountry. Anyone skiing or snowshoeing beyond the immediate Hurricane Ridge area should sign-in at the registration box in foyer of the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center and be prepared for steep terrain and the possibility of avalanches. Although close to town, Hurricane Ridge is subject to extreme winter conditions, including sudden storms, white-outs and avalanches, making planning and preparation for winter conditions vitally important.

Information about ski and snowshoe routes and trails is available at the park visitor centers, NPS website or the park newspaper, the Bugler
