Pocatello Cross Country Ski Foundation Mission

The Pocatello Cross Country Ski Foundation (PXCSF) is a non-profit organization committed to promoting and improving Nordic skiing for all levels of experience in Pocatello. We believe that a quality ski experience for novice and expert skiers depends on well maintained trails with excellent grooming. PXCSF assists the City of Pocatello to operate Mink Creek Nordic Area with volunteer labor and equipment for trail maintenance and grooming. PXCSF also promotes local skiing through events such as the Potato Cup race, Fun Race Series and fall Trail Runs with volunteer work days. We also support both masters and junior ski programs based on interest.

  1. Groomed all trails except upper canyon. Laid down classic tracks on all trails. Hopefully they will improve as I get better with the Piston Bully. The corduroy set down nice and the snow packed well. Should be an awesome day of skiing tomorrow. Enjoy,

  2. First time out with the Piston Bully this season; and as a bonus, this was my first time running the piston bully. Lance came up and gave me some excellent training this evening. Between the two of us we groomed every trail this evening. We did not set classic tracks, but I will attempt that tomorrow night. We received between 1’ to 1.5’ of snow from today’s storm. The bully put down some awesome corduroy that should ski fantastic tomorrow. It was slightly snowing when we left. Enjoy,

  3. Foundation volunteers have been hard at work packing the snow for the last 2 days with the Sherpa. Most of the trails have good coverage, with the exception of Screamer. There are plans to roll the trails tomorrow, should be ok skate skiing after that.
