100 Best Cross Country Ski Trails In Washington

Cross country skiing is a great, invigorating, affordable, and simple-to-learn sport. Not a lot of gear required – just good, healthy fun! It is both easy and accessible.
According to Vicky Spring and Tom Kirkendall the authors of  100 Best Cross Country Ski Trails in Washington
The mountainous terrain throughout the entire Washington state ensures that all of Washington's residents have access to excellent cross-country skiing, whether on groomed trails, on scenic logging roads, or on open slopes of glacier-covered volcanoes.
That's true. Almost all ski areas in our state have groomed/ungroomed XC trails that are easily accessible, withing driving distance form Seattle and well maintained.

But you don't have to limit yourself to the same places.

This guide offers 100 XC skiing adventures from "the frosty entrance of an ice cave to a route along the open -and often untracked - slopes of Mount St Helens." It also includes : information on avalanche hazards, permit and fee requirements, difficulty ratings, surface conditions , elevation gain, reader -friendly maps and more.

Not convinced that cross country can be fun, beautiful, and exciting ? Check out  this blog post that , hopefully, will inspire you to give cross country a try this winter.

If you're not a fan of fast paced, heart pumping, and somewhat technical cross country skiing, opt in for a mellow snowshoeing outing with  Snowshoe Routes Washington guide book that offers trails for beginners, and hard core adventures alike.
