Methow Valley Winter Trails


Cross-country Ski - Mazama Trails

Tour the magical area above the Methow Valley! exact route will depend on party interest, but will be approx 10-12m. We will start from the Mazama TH.

  • G-XC Groomed Varies
  • Moderate
  • Pace: Moderate - 2pmh uphill

Mazama Inn trailhead 0900.   Parking does get busy here, so we will try to be a little earlier, so that we can leave by 0900.

This is a well groomed area, but in the Rendezvous some trails are steep (blue) and mornings can be icy, so you should have good control of your skis.  There are a series of warming huts that make good places to visit and have lunch.  If there's party interest, we could even arrange for a one-way Rendezvous crossing with car shuttle, finishing at the Gunn Ranch TH perhaps.  If all members wish to skate that will be an option, but otherwise leader will assume classic skis.
