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 you're a novice skier or experienced veteran, a traditionalist or a skate skier, you'll find the perfect path for your ability and your style -- from the famed Vasa Pathway in the Pere Marquette State Forest, home of the internationally acclaimed North American Vasa Festival of Races, to the paved Leelanau Trail from Traverse City to Suttons Bay.

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.
