XC skiiing in Montana just got a whole lot easier thanks to CROSS COUNTRY SKI MONTANA, which provides a one-stop location for great information about Montana's outstanding XC ski trails and areas (for both classic and skate skiing), Nordic ski clubs, and ski shops!

  • Answers critical questions like: Is skiing free or is there a fee? Is the area groomed and if so, for classic, skate, or both? Who does the grooming? How do I get latest grooming report? How do I connect with the local ski club? Are there ski shops nearby for rentals or repairs? How many kilometers (miles) of trail exist? How do I get to the area? Are dogs allowed?
  • Both groomed and ungroomed, fee and free areas described! CROSS COUNTRY SKI MONTANA seeks to describe every groomed XC ski area in Montana, plus a large number of the state’s most popular ungroomed trailheads.
  • Highlights the Montana ski community! CROSS COUNTRY SKI MONTANA also highlights Montana’s many local ski clubs, good folks who volunteer to maintain, care for, and groom many of the state’s treasured XC ski locations. In addition, the app highlights local ski shops, places where skiers can rent or buy gear, have repairs done, or learn the latest conditions.
  • No WiFi or cellular connection needed to use CROSS COUNTRY SKI MONTANA! Why? Our app is designed to work offline because XC skiing in Montana often means heading into wild country, to places with no cellular service, much less WiFi. So almost every aspect of CROSS COUNTRY SKI MONTANA works regardless if the nearest cell tower is three counties away (only real-time grooming reports require connectivity).
  • No separate map purchase or dowloading maps required!The app is fully self-contained and and works with your smart phone or tablet’s GPS and Google Maps. XC skiers simply open the app and zoom to their current or desired location to explore new places to ski or get directions to their desired destination!
