COVID and Methow Trails

Winter has come early to the Methow Valley, and all of us here at Methow Trails are delighted with the advent of our favorite season! The early-season snowfall has allowed us to get out packing and grooming trails earlier than most of us can remember. And now that Washington Pass over Highway 20 is closed for the season, it is definitely feeling like winter! We know that this year more than ever, outdoor recreation has been a critical component of our community’s mental and physical well-being. We feel grateful every day for the opportunities for challenge, rejuvenation, fun, and connection out on our 120+ miles of trails. 

With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the state, we are all extra-aware of the need for appropriate precautions. We hope you will join us in choosing to #RecreateResponsibly. We are planning on operating a fairly normal season this year, with nightly grooming of nearly all of our 120+ miles of trail, free skiing for all kids 17 and under (and seniors 75+), and perfectly groomed trails for all abilities. We have implemented the following changes:

This winter will look different this year, and we are grateful for your support in helping to keep our community safe by following local and state guidelines for safe travel. As always, check our daily grooming report and social media for current conditions and updates. Stay safe!
