The Cross-Country Area

At the foot of Little Gore Mountain, visitors will find the cross-country arena "The North Creek Ski Bowl". The winter wonderland comprises ten trails, ready to be explored and enjoyed. 

Start your journey at trail A, an even terrain with slight ascents. This trail is ideal to improve your technique. The path now leads to a parcours through idyllic forest landscapes. After that, get an adrenalin rush on trail C, an extremely difficult and steep trail. Trail E offers a fantastic view of the Moxham Mountains. Beginners can also skip trail C and head directly to trail H, an open terrain made for technique and interval training. 

Trail F contains a slalom parcours, jumps and rollercoaster dips to improve your balance, speed and agility. Skiing during the nighttime is possible on trails A,B,C,F,G,H,I and J. 

The Most Beautiful Tracks

Trail E offers a spectacular view of the Moxham Mountains and Moxham Valley. Rollercoaster dips and slalom trails can be found on trail F. On trail C, advanced cross-country skiers can ascend a small hill and improve their technique.
