Where Gold Medal grooming and Reliable Snow come together to create a Nordic skier’s dream. Easily accessible from the town of West Yellowstone, Montana, the Rendezvous Ski Trails consist of over 35 kilometers of gently rolling, beautifully groomed trails that wind through tall stands of lodgepole pine and open meadows. The trail system is located entirely on U.S. Forest Service land and it is managed through a cooperative partnership between the Forest Service, the West Yellowstone Chamber of Commerce and the West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation (WYSEF). We hope that you will visit West Yellowstone and ski the Rendezvous Ski Trails soon!
Glacier Nordic Club, Inc. (GNC) is is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Since it was established in 1984, GNC strives to promote and inspire a life-long love of cross country skiing for anyone who skis on our trails. It seems like we’ve stayed on course with that mission. Parents who pulled their kids in sleds on the ski trails are now watching those kids compete in area races. Ski team members go on to compete in college Nordic programs. And our volunteers come out and support us year after year.
BRTA promotes non-motorized winter recreation and transportation activities by leasing and operating the Red Lodge Nordic Center, located 2 miles west of Red Lodge off Highway 78. We’ve laid out over 15K of groomed trails to take advantage of the inspiring views and easy-going nature of the terrain. With a warming hut and restroom, this is a great place for families to get out and have some affordable fun!
Children's programs and ski clinics offered throughout the winter season. Touring skiers might want to kick it up a notch and learn skate skiing, a great exercise to maintain your fitness level through winter. The prepared tracks for classic skiing and the skating lanes allow you to go as fast as your athleticism allows.
BRTA maintains the West Fork Road, a multi-use trail. West Fork is groomed on a weekly basis from Wild Bill Lake to Cascade Campground. We ask that all users use the appropriate lanes for recreation: skate ski, classic Nordic ski, fat bike, snow shoe, hiking, dog walking and some snowmobile use.

Rolling terrain framed by large granite outcrops amidst our private valley are all hallmarks of skiing at Homestake Lodge. The 35+ kilometers of trails at Homestake Lodge are kept narrow to provide skiers an intimate experience with nature. They are just wide enough for our state of the art Pisten Bully Paana grooming equipment to do its job. Most trails are set with a classic track and a skate lane. Some of our trails are just six feet wide and these are groomed with a snow machine and Ginzu groomer with track pan. You’ll love these narrow trails while you explore the more remote areas of our valley. If you want Majestic mountain views ski up the pass where the Tobacco Root Mountains will greet you with their snowy peaks.
The Silver Crest Trails are located on the Lewis and Clark National Forest in the Little Belt Mountains, just north of Kings Hill Pass, 6.5 miles south Neihart, MT. There are approximately 12 miles (20km) of groomed Nordic ski trails and 2 miles of separate ungroomed snowshoe trails. See our trail map page for more information about the trails.
The turn-off to the parking lot is marked by a sign indicating “USFS Winter Recreation Area”. Turn there, then follow the nordic ski signs to the parking lot. The parking lot is equipped with a latrine.
Montana's Yellowstone Country is truly a Nordic skier's paradise. The region is criss-crossed by thousands of miles/kilometers of skiable terrain, much of which has established trails. Venues with well developed cross-country skiing trails include West Yellowstone's Rendezvous Ski Trail area, Bozeman's Crosscut Mountain Sports Center, Big Sky's Lone Mountain Ranch, and Red Lodge's Nordic Center are just a handful of the great Nordic trail options around Yellowstone Country Montana. In the winter, Nordic skiing in Yellowstone National Park is one of the best ways to experience the wonder that is Yellowstone in the colder months. Guided cross-country skiing tours in Yellowstone help you navigate the expansive terrain of the park and is a safe way to take in many of the harder-to-reach locations.
Dog Creek maintains over 27 kilometers of groomed nordic trails during the winter season, usually mid December through March 31. Our nordic trail system is unique in that it exists both on our own private land as well as on Stillwater State Forest land. Stillwater State Forest is part of the Montana Department of Natural Resources (DNRC). The DNRC holds all of its land in a trust which generates revenue for the Montana public school system. A portion of every trail pass we sell goes directly to Montana public schools.
All of our trails at Dog Creek are dog friendly. All dog owners must sign a waiver and review our policies at the ski shop before taking your dogs onto the trail systems
We groom about fourteen kilometers of trails on MacDonald Pass; these trails unfold just east of the Continental Divide, about fifteen miles west of Helena. When we’re able to do so, we also groom about four kilometers of track on the in-town Bill Roberts Golf Course. We groom Mac Pass and the Golf Course, when snow-depth permits, for both classic and skate skiing. Skiers of all abilities are welcome on either trail, and skiing is free. To defray grooming and other expenses the Club welcomes skiers to become a Last Chance Nordic Ski Club member or make donations. There’s a lot of work done year-around, behind the scenes, to make the MacDonald Pass trails and the Golf Course tracks skiable. Besides grooming four to six days a week, there are snow-machines, rollers, and ginzu’s that need to be purchased and maintained; trails to be kept free of trees, branches, stones, and grass; signs to be erected; maps to be updated; this website to be maintained; restrooms to be maintained and cleaned; grants to be sought and procured; parking lots to be plowed out; and many other large and small but vital tasks. About half the grooming is paid, all other work is done by club members volunteering. Four or so Saturdays a year, our Youth Skiers program provides kids, ages three to twelve, with a couple hours of fun on the snow alongside volunteer instructors and parents while they improve their cross country skiing skills. A weekly Master Skiers program, open to all skiers of all abilities, brings continuing cross country ski education to the eighteen-plus years-old set.
