One of the greatest perks of living in Utah is the amazing opportunity for winter recreation – and in particular, cross-country skiing. The Salt Lake City region is home to many prime locations for this sport. So strap on those skis and get ready for some winter adventures.
White Pine Nordic Center
You’ll find this beautiful ski spot in Park City, one specifically designed for Nordic skiers. They have three track loops – a 3K for beginners and those who want a quick warm-up before a longer journey, a 5K for those who want a little challenge and some hilly terrain, and a 10K for the hardcore crowd who really want a workout along with a wintry adventure. You can purchase passes and check the weather and trail reports on their website.
This skiing haven in Liberty is a nonprofit run by people committed to promoting cross-country skiing, snow-biking, and snowshoeing in northern Utah. There are approximately 20 miles of cross-country track, all maintained by their dedicated volunteers. Purchase a season pass and enjoy this opportunity all winter long.
Sundance Nordic Center
Sundance is famous for its incredible skiing opportunities, and their Nordic Center is a perfect example of that. They have over 9 miles of cross-country trails for skiing and snowshoeing. They offer an incredible experience to join a guided night tour, in which you can enjoy the stillness of the winter landscape and call for owls. And if you are in need of some improvement or are just beginning your skiing journey, you can take lessons with their incredible instructors.
