CROSS COUNTRY SKIING scroll to bottom 01/29/23 8:00 am
NOTE: DUE TO STAFFING ISSUES WE MAY OR MAY NOT BE ABLE TO OPEN FOR SKI RENTALS EVEN IF WE HAVE 4 INCHES OF SNOW. THIS PAGE WILL BE UPDATED TO REFLECT CURRENT CONDITIONS.
Welcome to the Ski Conditions Report..
WE WANT SNOW !
If there is more than 4 inches of accumulated snow on the ground, come out to Fox Island and Metea County Parks for cross country skiing. We have a limited number of skis available for rent and sometimes we’ll be open only if you have your own equipment.
Rental prices for both parks are $6.00 per hour for adults and $5.00 per hour for children 12 and under. REMINDER: At this time we DO NOT TAKE CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS, Only cash and checks!! Limited sizes are available especially at Metea County Park. We start renting at 10 am when the Nature Centers open and stop renting around 4:00 pm each day so that all skiers are accounted for before dark and the park closes.
The sled hill at Metea County Park will also be open from 9am to 6pm every day we have enough snow.
If you are out at the park for other reasons while conditions are good for skiing please do not walk on trails that are designated for skiiing. These should be marked appropriately with signage.
You can always check the “Home” page for the latest condition but here is a legend of what the appropriate “traffic lights” mean
If you see this red light (STOP) it means conditions are not favorable for skiing.
YELLOW means we are NOT renting skis but you may bring your equipment and ski at your own risk!
GREEN means COME ON OUT AND SKI!! We’re also renting!
