Dog Days

Woof Loop Detail Map

Crosscut is looking forward to expanding our options for canines this winter!  Canines and their owners will be welcomed after 3pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

Dogs may use all trails south of Whiskey Gulch (see the map above).

We have two dog waste stations, one just in front of the nordic center, and one at the Pumphouse, and we ask that you clean up after your dog in the parking lot and on the trails. Any off leash dogs must be under voice control, and no dog may behave aggressively towards other dogs or people.


Crosscut is excited to offer both private and group lessons this year. You can sign up for group lessons online here:

Fat bikING

Crosscut is excited to welcome fat bikes this season. Fat bikes will be allowed on the Narrow Gauge trail network seven days a week under the following terms of use:

Day Ticket or Season Pass is required

Fat bikes yield to all other traffic, on the trail and at intersections. Recognize that the Narrow Gauge trails are multi directional, and that you may encounter other trail users at any time. Always ride in control.

Fat bikes should stay out of the classic tracks, and stay to the right for oncoming traffic. Please be courteous and respectful to all other trail users. 

Helmets should be worn on the trails at all times. 

Fat bike riding is conditions dependent, we will post fat biking conditions on our grooming report, but if you are sinking in more than 2", it is too soft for fat bike riding.

Fat bikes only, tires must be 3.7" or wider.

Skier Policies

All trail users must have a valid Season Pass or Day Ticket.

Always ski on posted trails and in indicated direction of travel, ski to the right when meeting on-coming skiers, ski in control, move to the side of the trail for rest stops, and please be courteous and respect all property.

Season Pass holders will have extra privileges as follows:
We will open on December 1st, 2018.  If conditions allow, Season Pass holders only will have access to skiing in advance of the Dec. 1 opening date.

CMSC will be open to the public 7 days a week between 9am and 4pm. Season Pass holders may ski between the hours of 8am and 6pm during the regular season. Please be advised that Season Pass holders who choose to ski before or after regular business hours will do so at their own risk and without emergency support from CMSC staff.

We will close on April 1st, 2019.  If conditions allow, Season Pass holders only will have access to late season skiing as long as safe snow conditions last. Please be advised that late season grooming will occur irregularly as conditions permit.

Each season pass holder will receive one complimentary voucher along with their pass, good for one free Adult/Youth day ticket at Crosscut Mountain Sports Center.
