Pagosa Springs Nordic Trails
The Pagosa Nordic Club (PNC) has expanded Nordic Ski Trail Grooming this winter which now includes 5 Nordic Track trail heads with more than 50 km of trails groomed for Skate Skiing, Classic Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing. NEW this season is Reservoir Hill, Coyote Hill, Turkey Springs, Williams Creek and the Expanded West Fork trail system. PNC's new grooming equipment will provide a smooth wide surface for skate skiing with set tracks for classic cross country skiing. All trail heads accommodate all ability levels, beginner to advanced.
The Pagosa Nordic Club is a non profit volunteer organization with a mission "To enhance winter recreational opportunities in Pagosa Springs by maintaining accessible groomed winter trails for skate skiing, classic cross country skiing & snowshoeing for all ability levels and to encourage and promote the use of these winter trails through education, marketing and events".
Trails are FREE to use, however donations are a critical part of our funding which enables us to continue our grooming efforts. Funding for the Groomed Nordic Ski trails project relies on generous donations from our trail users as these funds are needed for our grooming expenses.
Please sign in at the trail heads. The information collected will help the club in securing future equipment funding through grants.
The Pagosa Nordic Club would like to thank the US Forest Service, Town of Pagosa Springs, Archuleta County Government, local businesses, residents and visitors for their continued generous financial support for the groomed Nordic ski trails project. If interested in a membership, donation or corporate sponsorship, please see the Membership/donation/sponsorship page.
All membership fees, donations and sponsorships are tax deductible.
