Foothills Cross-country Skiing Committee

The Foothills Cross Country Ski committee is dedicated to offering safe and fun cross-country ski outings for Mountaineers members on our beautiful winter trails, and to train skilled and supportive nordic ski leaders for the future.

What is Cross-Country Skiing?

Cross-country skiing is usually on groomed trails or roads, both uphill and down, where your heel is free to lift.
