The Missoula Nordic Ski Club grooms the cross country ski trails at the Pattee Canyon Picnic Area (Lolo National Forest), Lubrecht Forest (University of Montana), and the Rattlesnake Recreation Area (Lolo National Forest). Snow and grooming information for these and a number of other western Montana XC areas is available by clicking on the Snow Grooming tab above. Our ZANY youth ski program helps kids learn to ski. See the calendar listing below for other activities. The club is supported by membership dues and donations. Click on the membership tab above to join.
The Lolo to Lochsa race for 2015 has been cancelled. There is not enough snow coverage to hold the race or to move the groomer to the course. We are contacting those who registered.
Logging is now happening at the Pattee Canyon picnic area. The other northside trails and the southside trails continue to be open. See the Pattee Canyon topic of the Snow Grooming tab for more details.
