Our work maintaining and grooming trails presses forward into our 44th year of operations and rest assured we plan on grooming all our trails this winter. If there was any place that was built to work in a global pandemic, it is the Methow Valley surrounded by millions of acres of wilderness and the largest ski trail system in North America.

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 are also adding touchless payment options to purchase and display daily trail passes on your phone (more on that later.) 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.

If you like what we do and want to see it continue please consider purchasing a pass for this year or donating to us.

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. Donations can be made here.
