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.

    Good morning, rolled Spruces for the final time today. Lots of new snow and heavy snow fall as I was finishing, so it will be fresh snow on top of the groom. This will conclude our grooming operations for the year. Please note all the trail signs and maps have been taken down. Thanks for another good season of skiing at Spruces! Enjoy your spring and summer.
