Nordic skiing

Cold weather and recent grooming has created excellent conditions on Mount Spokane, Fourth of July Pass and Upper Wolf and Geophysical trails.

Escape the crowds: the Flume and Lonestar trails in the Priest Lake State Park were groomed this week, deserted and in great condition.


The groomer in the Colville area has completed trails in the Little Pend Orielle and Sherman Pass areas and will start on trails at 49 Degrees North today.

All trails in the south tri-counties trail system are reportedly in fair condition. Mount Spokane was the only trail re-groomed this week.

Intense grooming in the Methow Valley has left 180 miles of trail in great condition for the weekend.
