Backcountry ski access route for the winter season of 2021. Mapped route leads from Crosscut into the National Forest. On Crosscut's property, the route is clearly marked up to the boundary with the National Forest. Once on the Forest, route is unmarked and this track represents a recommended route.
Uphill ticket is required for use (see Crosscut Webstore). Use the same route to return to Crosscut from backcountry skiing. The route uses portions of the Narrow Gauge Trail System and a short section of the Brackett Creek Ski Trail. Please stay on the designated route for both leaving and returning to Crosscut. Please use appropriate caution at all trail intersections and be mindful of other trail users.

Access Info Restricted Access

Please purchase a Uphill Ski ticket from Crosscut Mountain Sports Center. Limited to 10 per day. https://www.crosscutmt.org/crosscut-store
