Methow Valley Winter Trails


Cross-country Ski - Rendezvous Trails

A classic ski trip to the PNW’s premier Nordic skiing destination - Methow Valley . Skiers must be competent on intermediate blue trails and have some level of fitness.

  • G-XC Groomed Varies
  • Moderate

Details to follow. It is recommended to stay in Winthrop for convenience. 

Due to thin coverage on the south facing aspect of Rendezvous Mountain we are changing our plan and will start and finish at the Cub Creek Trailhead. 

From Cub Creek Trailhead we will head towards Heifer Hut (8.5k) and turn back when the group wants, or loop down to Rendezvous Pass (7.2k) and returning via Little Cub Creek (6.5k).
