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. Morning groomed 5-6” new snow. 2 passes Creekside, Ermine and Race Loop. Moose on Sage Loop so only did one pass there. Snow packed well. Tomorrow morning should be great skiing.

  2. It was 37 degrees when I started grooming at 7:30 this evening. I groomed all of the trails this evening, except for upper canyon. The trails above Ermine were still in good shape and received one pass. Everything else got two passes. The skiing today was amazing and will be fantastic this weekend. Be sure to go out and get some! It was 27 degrees at 10:15 when I finished grooming this evening. And on a positive note……the moose that had taken up residence on the race course between Upper Canyon and the Meadow the last few weeks has finally moved on.

  3. Everything groomed with classic track set – from Creek Side to High Basin – including Race Course, Lost Groomer, Daileys and Cutoff. It was a beautiful night for grooming with a “full” moon and no new snow falling – at least as of 4:00 a.m. Enjoy – warm temps on the horizon – even above 32 at night.

  4. Andrea and Joey groomed with the PistenBully this morning. This is their report:
    Over a foot where it has not drifted. There was no sign of moose on the race course. Groomers choice is Daileys. 1-2 Laps done in everything. Firming up fast and currently snowing! Enjoy!

  5. Groomed a shorten race course, ermine and creek side. Reset classic track on race course. Race course has been shortened because of the presence of the moose who has been moving between upper canyon and sage. 30F and mostly clear at 9:30pm.
