Plain-old Nordic Skiing

There’s nothing ordinary about skiing Plain. For example, the hub of the Nordic action is a hardware store and the community’s economics are rooted in agriculture, ranching, and forestry. That would seem to make the community more of a Carhartts and snowmobiling place. Yet thanks to the seeds planted by one person, Nordic skiing has found a home here.

Twin Peaks in Winter

For about a month each winter when we have low snow, the road up Twin Peaks makes for an accessible and surprisingly enjoyable ski, snowshoe, or winter walk. The snow season is short so when opportunity knocks (like it is now), out the snow toys and go.

Mazama & Winthrop Nordic Trails

The groomed trails of the Methow Valley are superb for Nordic skiers of all abilities. Around Winthrop most trails span scenic but fairly flat forests and farms. Mazama is a little higher and hillier and usually gets more snow. Here are our recommended trails near both towns.
