Cross-Country Skiing

What better way to "unplug" from the daily assault on our senses than with a peaceful ski through some of the most beautiful wilderness in the North? Nordic ski enthusiasts will discover a winter wonderland in Traverse City and the surrounding areas. Whether a novice or experienced, traditional or skate skier, you will find a path perfect for your ability and sensibility.

The Pere Marquette State Forest is home to the Vasa Pathway -- a series of 3K, 5K, 10K, and 25K paths that loop through towering pine trees. The site of the internationally acclaimed North American Vasa Cross-Country Ski Race, this pathway is a treasured gem to those who live and visit Traverse City.

Forge your own trail through the woods or across gently rolling fields, or tackle the trails at any of the area's full-service ski resorts. Here you'll find groomed and lighted trails, clinics, lessons and equipment rental.
