Kirkwood Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Center
The Kirkwood Kirkwood Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Center is located at 7,800 feet in the beautiful Alpine Valley. This cross country center has it all – picture 80km of groomed trails, gorgeous scenery, and a day lodge to keep you toasty warm! The diverse terrain options make it great for all abilities, and the three trailside warming huts will keep you refreshed and energized.
Your furry canines will appreciate the two dog-friendly trails, the High Trail and the Outer Loop meadow trail. Look for the interpretive signs that dot many of the trails, plus three interconnected trail systems. Children love the Kiddy Kilometer, a loop trail featuring life-sized animal cutouts with informative flip-up signs. With two grooming machines, multiple trails systems can be groomed simultaneously, plus each trail has both cross country skiing and snowshoe lanes.
There are two trailhead facilities with parking, and the day lodge has a wood burning stove ready to warm you up. Kirkwood XC offers group and private lessons and tours, rentals, and a retail shop. The Kirkwood Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Center is found just ¼ mile east of Kirkwood Resort along Highway 88, right next to the Kirkwood Inn. After a day of cross country skiing or snowshoeing, sit down and relax with a delicious meal at the Inn.
