The snow is getting a little soft by mid-afternoon, especially on the southern facing hills. All in all, the skiing is great, and the sunny days seem like they are here to stay for a bit.

We touched up skate lanes Tuesday. More of the same Wednesday. Everything is skiing really well right now!


As a friendly reminder from your groomers, please DO NOT SHORTCUT between trails. We work very hard to groom the 21+ km of established trails for our skiers. When one person takes a shortcut up/down a trail, even more people tend to follow it. Shortcutting trails tends to mess up our classic track and skate lane and it has the potential to cause skier traffic problems. Please stick to the established trails, thank you!





The Spring Gulch Trail System is

Spring Gulch Trail System is operated by the Mount Sopris Nordic Council, a local non-profit organization, and represents a community effort in every sense of that phrase.


Access to these trails is made possible due to the generous permission of the North Thompson Cattlemen’s Association and the Crystal River Ranch for use of their land during the winter months.


Hundreds of hours of hard work by volunteers, professional grooming staff, and thousands of dollars worth of materials and specialized equipment are required to maintain these trails for your enjoyment.


No trail fee is charged at Spring Gulch thanks to the ongoing financial support provided by membership contributions, local government and foundation grants, business sponsorships, and fundraisers. You are encouraged to become a member of the Mt Sopris Nordic Council and help support this community achievement. If you enjoy skiing at Spring Gulch, you can make a contribution or pick up a membership form at the trail head, or follow the link on this website.
