Cross Country Skiing

The Bitterroot Cross-Country Ski Club maintains a huge network of classic and skate skiing trails known as the Chief Joseph Trail System.

Chief Joseph Pass Trail System

Nearly across the road from Lost Trail Ski Area along the Continental Divide at the southern end of the Bitterroot Valley. A variety of trails are regularly groomed for classic cross country skiing. A cozy log cabin is available for skiers to enjoy lunch or to warm up just up the trail a short distance. You don`t have to be a member to ski the Chief Joseph Trails, but members help pay for the grooming of all ski trails. Donations are encouraged. Elevation 7,251'
”Fantastic place on the Bitteroot! This is the 2nd time we have rented this cottage and are ready to make reservations to return next year. Perfect location, with the river in your backyard. Wonderful little house, immaculately clean. Would highly recommend !”
