HARRIMAN STATE PARK

Visitors to Harriman State Park during the winter season can enjoy numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation, lodging, photography, and wildlife viewing. The park offers 24 miles of groomed trails for classic cross country skiing, skate skiing, snowshoeing, and fat-tire biking. The Idaho Falls Nordic Ski Patrol is proud to call Harriman State Park our primary patrol area.

TETON VALLEY TRAILS & PATHWAYS

TVTAP was formed in the fall of 1998, with the focus of creating a paved, pathway along Teton Creek between Driggs and Teton Canyon. The Valley’s first paved pathway, built in 1997 by the Idaho Transportation Department between Victor and Driggs, encouraged the founding members to form TVTAP to pursue additional pathways. TVTAP's winter programs includes a Nordic Grooming Program, which provides groomed Nordic ski trails in Teton Canyon, Alta, Pioneer Park in Victor, Teton Springs Resort, and the Driggs Nordic Track.

EAST FORK MINK CREEK NORDIC CENTER

Located about 7 miles from Pocatello, the East Fork Mink Creek Nordic Center is operated by the City of Pocatello along with the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and volunteers from the Pocatello Cross-Country Ski Foundation. It hosts approximately 20k of groomed skate and classic ski trails, as well as separate snowshoe trails and a sledding hill. Trail passes are required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Snowshoeing does not require a trail pass, but does require a parking pass.

CRATERS OF THE MOON

The winter landscape at Craters of the Moon is one of black and white. Deep snow obscures the once fiery lava, and dark, jagged rocks protrude here and there through mounds of snow. It's a landscape of dramatic contrasts and rugged beauty. Winter visitors explore a snowy wonderland of lava, juniper, and limber pine on skis or snowshoes, an experience quite unique and different from the other seasons of the year.

Kelly Canyon Ski Resort welcomes Nordic, fat biking, and snowshoeing enthusiasts to its expanding trail system known as the SHRED TRAILS!  The Shred Trails are currently 12 miles of groomed uphill-downhill terrain including beautiful forest seclusion and spectacular vistas that can be accessed starting at the lodge or by riding Lift 4 to the top of the mountain.  It usually takes a couple of weeks after opening before trails are firm enough to accommodate fat bikes.

REXBURG SKI TRAILS

Located on the Teton Lakes & Legacy (Municipal) Golf Course, Rexburg Ski Trails are groomed and maintained by volunteers who love Nordic skiing for members of the community to enjoy in partnership with the City of Rexburg.

The West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation (WYSEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation established in 1996 to promote cross country skiing in all its forms through education, facility development and participation.
The primary goal of WYSEF is to bring children and adults of the community together through cross country skiing, a lifetime learning activity which promotes physical fitness and appreciation of our natural environment.

Nordic/Backcountry Program

For over three decades, the Nordic/Backcountry program has been an integral part of the National Ski Patrol. The program has provided services to backcountry enthusiasts.

In September 2017, the NSP board of directors changed the name of the program to the Nordic/Backcountry Program, reflecting the program’s expanded scope.  The diverse nature of the Nordic/Backcountry classification lends itself to be a unique program within the NSP. The variety of equipment types, the extended patient care knowledge required, the needed backcountry survival skills, all contribute to defining Nordic/Backcountry patrollers.
