Whether you prefer classical or skate skiing, Minnesota state parks have many miles of groomed cross-country ski trails for you!
- Remember to check the snow and trail conditions before you head out.
- Anyone age 16 or older must carry a signed ski pass when using groomed cross-country ski trails in state parks or state forests, or on state trails or grant-in-aid trails. You don't need a ski pass if you aren't using groomed trails.
