Nordic Cross Country and Snowshoes
Kelly Canyon Ski Resort welcomes nordic, fat biking, and snowshoeing enthusiasts to its expanding trail system known as the SHRED TRAILS! The Shred Trails are currently 12 miles of groomed uphill-downhill terrain including beautiful forest seclusion and spectacular vistas that can be accessed starting at the lodge or by riding Lift 4 to the top of the mountain. It usually takes a couple of weeks after opening before trails are firm enough to accommodate fat bikes.

Kelly Canyon charges a facility fee of $8 per person per day (ages 12 and under are free) for a nordic/biking/snowshoeing pass entitling the holder to park in the private parking areas owned by the Resort, use of the lodge facilities, and use of the trails within the permit area of the Resort. The only legal parking and lodge facilities in the vicinity are located on private land owned by the Resort. Using Lift 4 requires the purchase of a full-day or half-day lift ticket. Single lift rides can be purchased for $6 each.
Additional trails are planned for future winter and summer seasons. So stay tuned!
Have a great time as you "SHRED THE CANYON".
At the opening of the 2019-2020 winter season, Kelly Canyon Ski Resort is providing parking on Resort private property at no charge at the far west end of the lower parking lot to biking, hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoe recreationists who only want to access the national forest on the road between the Resort and the Y Junction, and who will not be using any other Resort facilities or trails. Parking is at your own risk. The recreationists must cooperatively comply with the policies in the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area and on Resort private property. No trailers, oversized vehicles, motorized recreational vehicles or pets are allowed in the parking area or anywhere else within the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area (including the road between the Resort and the Y Junction) or on the private property of the Resort. The parking and access to national forest are cooperative efforts between the Resort, Jefferson County, and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
