Trail groomers have been extra busy this season. We have seen regular snow accumulations, which requires much labor and time to keep trails groomed for your enjoyment.

Pagosa Springs is very fortunate to have four entities that groom trails for cross-country skiing. For trails groomed specifically for cross-country skiing, other non-skiing trail use like snowshoeing, fat tire biking and walking, are strongly discouraged on the groomed trail surface, as trail damage to the trail surface is common and affects the enjoyment of the skiing experience. If your winter outing requires use of the groomed trail, please use the edge of the trail and avoid the set tracks.
