Cross Country Skiing In Pagosa Springs
- Alberta Loop at Wolf Creek Ski Area
Wolf Creek has nearly 10 kilometers of cross country trails. To get there, take the ski road at the end of the lower parking lot to Alberta Park. A 4 kilometer loop goes around the natural meadows. An additional 6 kilometer loop takes you down to Alberta Reservoir and back through the trees. Tracks are groomed regularly for both classical and skate skiers. Snowshoers are welcome. Please clean up after your dogs. Use of the cross country trail is compliments of Wolf Creek Ski Area – no charge.
- Coyote Hill Nordic Loops
The Coyote Hill Nordic Loops are easily accessible from Pagosa Springs. The parking and trailhead are 6.25 miles up Piedra Road from Hwy 160, where the asphalt ends – across the road from the Turkey Springs trailhead. The loops incorporate about 5 miles of trails. This can be a challenging course with uphills and downhills. If you view yourself as a beginner x-country skier, you might consider taking the first loop to the left a short distance from the parking area, and not going up and over the hill.
