Cross Country Skiing

Thick blankets of snow turn the Sierra into a magical playground for ETC's winter adventures. Whether cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, exploring the giant sequoias, or sipping hot cocoa in our cozy cabin, your winter expedition will be filled with wonder and laughter. While the 2017 season has been shortened to early February to mid-March, our winter adventures are full of fun and wonder, including basic instruction in skiing technique, indoor and outdoor games, and environmental education.

Bear Valley Nordic
We ski on well-groomed trails at Bear Valley Cross-country Ski Resort, which offers all levels of challenge. Our well-equipped winter cabin in the beautiful pine forests near Arnold is a great place to relax and enjoy the camaraderie of companions after a day of skiing.
