The Methow Valley’s Nordic ski trails are groomed and ready for the earliest opening in the 39-year history of the Methow Trails organization, executive director James DeSalvo said Friday (Nov. 20).
Part of the Methow Valley received up to 2 feet of new snow the previous week, according to a Methow Trails press release.
“The snow just kept coming and we have maximized every inch, creating a strong ski trail platform in all four of our skiing areas: Mazama, the Rendezvous, Sun Mountain and Winthrop,” DeSalvo said.
Methow Trails is North America’s largest cross-country ski area with over 120 miles of groomed trails.
Daily grooming reports and trail conditions can also be found on the Methow Trails website at methowtrails.org/winter-trails/grooming or via the free Methow Trails mobile app.
The early snow also allowed for grooming on some of the fat bike trails at Pearrygin Lake State Park last week. A Sno-Park permit is required at the park.
A multi-use trail for skiing and fat biking will be available at the Town Trailhead in Winthrop when there is enough snow. Other fat-biking areas include Lloyd Ranch, Gunn Ranch and Big Valley.
