Spruces Nordic ski trail is a free 5K loop in the US Forest Service Spruces campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is groomed several times each week. It is a very pretty track through the trees, with loops that are fun and challenging for experienced skiers and areas that are fun for children and novices.

This is watershed. No dogs on the trails or in your car.

The Spruces weather station is right next to the track. It has information on temperature and snow depth.

    Well, that’s a wrap. Pavement showing on north side of upper loop prevents a full groom. We are finished grooming for the year. There is still plenty of snow up there to ski on, and fresh snow next week could make for nice classic skiing. However, grooming operations are concluded. Thanks for a good season!
