Cross Country Skiing

1915 Barn and the BridgersAs soon as we have gotten enough snow each year, Dean uses his snowmobile and commercial track setter to lay out a cross-country ski trail on our property.

The trail is generally about 5K long and is kept well-groomed by Dean’s frequent outings with our Australian Shepherd, Bodhi. All guests of The 1915 Barn have full access to Dean’s personal cross-country ski course in addition to the public courses available nearby.

The Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF), a local non-profit group, keeps many miles of cross-country ski trails groomed in and around Bozeman. The more than 40 miles of groomed trails include:

  • 5.5 miles at Bridger Creek Golf Course
  • 7 miles around Lindley Park, and 4.5 miles of the Hyalite East trails
  • 10 miles along Bozeman Creek/Sourdough Canyon
  • Almost 18 miles in Hyalite Canyon

BSF sells trail passes for $50 (individual) and $100 (family) which are encouraged, but not required. Trail maps and reports, upcoming events and races, along with lots of other information about BSF is available at the Bridger Ski Foundation website.

There are many other options for cross-country skiing in the Bozeman area including Bohart Ranch in Bridger Canyon, Big Sky Resort and Lone Mountain Guest Ranch, (both in Big Sky), and Rendezvous Ski Trails in West Yellowstone. Happy Trails!
