Happy Trails: Cross-Country Ski or Snowshoe for Free

Planning on staying home in your cozy bed this weekend warding off the Bay Area drizzle? That’s suddenly not going to sound so good when you hear what we have to tell you. For one day only--Saturday, Jan. 10--100 ski resorts in 23 states sprinkled across the country are offering snow bunnies the opportunity to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing FREE in celebration of the 14th annual Winter Trails Day, part of Learn a Snow Sport Month put on by SnowSports Industries America.

Participating California locations are Sierra-at-Tahoe, Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area, Northstar at Tahoe, Kirkwood Cross Country Ski Area and Snowshoe Center, Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort in Soda Springs, Bear Valley XC and Rim Nordic Ski Area in Running Springs. All resorts provide the necessary equipment and assistance, and either the opportunity to cross-country ski or snowshoe or sometimes both (offerings vary by location).
