The Cross-Country Area

Cross-Country Skiing really is something at this high-country site, traversing ideal skiing terrain. Nine lakes and vast forest can be viewed in distant panoramas along Buena Vista's 25 kilometers (16 miles) of trails. The landscape of Buena Vista is exceptionally scenic. The trails meander through forests of pine and hardwood, over rolling hills and skirt the shores of serene lakes. The Buena Vista Ski trails require the MN Ski Pass, which is not available at Buena Vista.

The difficulty of Buena Vista trails varies between intermediate and advanced. After cross-country skiing, you can visit the Tubing Park and slide downhill on tires!
