Cross Country Skiing
There are many ways to experience The Greatest Snow on Earth® beyond the dreamy downhill of our 15 ski resorts. Utah's famous snow is equally ideal for serene, moonlit cross-country ski tours or more strenuous cardio workouts. The well-organized cross-country skiing Utah community means plenty of groomed trails on and off the resorts. You can also explore deeper into Utah's extensive backcountry for countless hours of active entertainment.
Utah has hundreds of roads and trails perfect for exhilarating cross-country skiing journeys. There are classic mountaintop routes, tracks through snow-dusted red rock, historic trails, and even numerous snowed-in golf courses and state parks that get into the act. Below you'll find a combination of groomed trails popular with families and people of varied skill levels and access to trailheads that lead into the backcountry – with guided tours if desired. Be aware that weather events are unpredictable but always check current conditions and snow reports before venturing in the backcountry and learn more about backcountry safety below.
