Southern Oregon Nordic Club


Cross country skiing in Southern Oregon? Where the Siskiyous meet the Cascades, our skiers are blessed with a ring of snow surrounding the Rogue Valley during winter months. Our normal ski season starts by early December and sometimes as early as the first week of November.

Snow cover at our usual venues starts getting thin by mid March, but skiers willing to travel to nearby Crater Lake, Mt. Shasta, or Telemark skiers interested in climbing Mt. McLoughlin and Mt. Scott extend their ski season into April, May and beyond.

In partnership with the BLM, SONC volunteers use a tracked Polaris ATV to pull a YTS tracksetter and trail reconditioner to groom Hyatt Lake/Buck Prairie Nordic System trails.
