Pocatello Nordic Skiing Trail Information

Trail pass is required to ski at the area regardless of day or hour Trail passes are required 24/7.  Rules apply 24/7 including designated dog trails and walking on groomed trails. We appreciate your help to keep the groomed trails in excellent condition by using them appropriately and supporting them financially. Friday-Sunday 9am-5pm please pay in the rental office near the main parking lot. Season passes are on sale at the City Parks and Recreation Offices. It is important that season pass holders sign-in at the yurt with each use, as this provides us with documentation of the necessary use numbers to justify the area staying open. If no one is staffing the A-frame, simply put payment in red fee box near parking lot or Creek Side parking spots. To reduce costs, the honor system is in place. Trails are typically groomed daily by city employees or PXCSF volunteers. Everyone utilizing the groomed trails needs to pay the daily trail fee or hold a season pass even during mid-week and night use.    Please be honest: The survival of the area depends on it. Wouldn’t you like to see the area get better? Leveler trails, grooming machinery maintained, new structures, lights…? The growth potential is endless, but we need your help. Grooming isn’t free even with volunteer groomers.

  1. From Lance: Grooming update:
    3-5” overnight. The excellent classic track from Joe the night before was buried.
    Upper canyon remains blocked by a downed tree. All other trails were pisten bully groomed and got fresh ginzu track.

    All drifted areas were bladed flat. Traffic was light today. Everything will be left to firm up overnight.

  2. Groomed all trails this evening, except Upper Canyon. It was 39 degrees when I started and the snow was soft. Daley’s was almost drifted close on the upper section. It was just starting to snow as I was finishing up for the evening. It was 38 degrees at 8pm when I left the parking lot.
