Rim Nordic Ski Area’s trail system entices cross-country skiers and snowshoers of all skill levels with 10 miles of trek-worthy landscapes through the San Bernardino National Forest. Eight meticulously groomed trails host snowgoers, including two exclusively for snowshoeing. Cross-country skiers slide in the tracks set for classic skiing, use wider lanes when employing the skating technique, or hop into the carpool lane provided at least one person is riding on their shoulders. Snowshoers can wander off the trails to fully connect with the surrounding wilderness and stop anywhere to enjoy a snack. Before preparing for the crisp mountain air, parties should check the snow report for an idea of current trail conditions and the performance of Father Winter’s mutual funds.
Rim Nordic Ski Area
Tucked into the San Bernardino Mountains, Rim Nordic Ski Area puts its stunning setting to good use. When winter barrels in and covers the groomed trail system with the cold powdery stuff, visitors can strap on rented snowshoes or cross-country skis and set off on snowy adventures. Groomed ski trails and tracks for classic skiing impose an outdoorsy form of order, while cross-country lessons prepare first-timers for their expeditions. While the mountain is the perfect place for a wintry outing, Rim Nordic Ski Area doesn't let summer stop the fun either—cyclists also take advantage of powder-free slopes during bike season.
