Trail Conditions/Notes: And thats a wrap! To our pass-holders, sponsors, donors, board members, staff, volunteers, visitors, vendors, and trailside land owners, thank you. We could not do it without you. Thank you all for being a part of and supporting your community trail system!

We are finished grooming ALL areas for the season. ALL trails are now under SUMMER use so you are welcome to walk, run, ride, and still ski on trails that allow summer access.

The most reliable way to see what has been groomed any morning is to look for green on the trail sections you are interested in skiing. The timestamp will not always be accurate but color should be.

Under state and county guidelines a face covering is not needed when you are outside walking, exercising, or otherwise outdoors as long as you are able to stay 6 feet away from other people who do not live with you. However, at trailheads, busy trails, bathrooms, any indoor spaces and trail intersections please be ready to pull a mask over your face to keep our trails open and trail users safe. As always our plan this winter will be to keep our trails roomy, with a minimum ski trail grooming width of 12 feet and 11 formal trailheads with hundreds of informal access points. Fresh corduroy and solitary tracks will be available daily for all who are willing to get up earlyish and ski away from the more popular venues. We have also added a mobile ticketing system to purchase and display trail passes on your phone. Of course, by nature winter sports naturally encourage the wearing of gloves, face and eye coverings, and other forms of functional PPE. Finally, grooming our trails is an isolated profession and art performed in the middle of the night, so we do not anticipate any disruption.

Trail passes are required. If you like what we do and want to see it continue please consider purchasing a full annual pass this year or donating to us on our website or app under tickets.

Methow Trails is a non-profit organization that has been connecting people and trails since 1977. Your donations and winter trail pass purchases sustains the trails you love year round.
