Winthrop's Ski Trails are Open!

The Methow Valley ski trails are open and continue to have great cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fat biking. Beginning February 17, we invite ski season pass holders from any alpine or nordic ski area in North America to join us for a day on the trails for FREE.    

Ski season pass holders simply need to stop into the Methow Trails office at 309 Riverside Avenue, Winthrop, WA during normal business hours, show a valid 2015 season pass from any alpine or nordic ski area* in the US or Canada and we will provide you with a ticket to ski for free, for one day, on the Methow Valley cross-country ski trails. This offer is not good from any other Methow Trails ski vendor, rather only redeemable at the Methow Trails office. One pass, per person for one day of skiing this season. This offer is good for the remainder of this ski season. Methow Trails office hours for this promotion are Monday-Friday 9:00am - 3:00pm and Saturday and Sunday 10:00am-2:00pm.

Methow Trails salutes skiers that make an investment in snow sliding activities. A season pass is a great show of support for your favorite ski area and Methow Trails wants to add value to your investment during a winter that has been trying for many.  

Methow Trails is North America’s largest cross-country ski area with over 120 miles of perfectly groomed trails where kids 17 and under ski free everyday. The Methow Trails nordic system also has selected trails open and available to fat biking and snowshoeing. 

Daily grooming reports with real time GPS trail updates can be found at, via the free Methow Trails app or by calling 509-996-3860. A full schedule of events and activities can also be found on our website at

*day and annual sno-park permits do not apply.
