Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The park does not groom any trails for cross-country skiing. Skiers blaze their own trails through the snow. The best places to cross-country ski are on the frozen Little Missouri River and on closed park roads.
Skiing on park trails can be somewhat difficult. The trails are narrow and many cross the creek bottoms. These creek bottoms are like little canyons and may be too steep for safe skiing. They, and all coulees and draws, may also fill up with blowing snow hiding their true depth.
Snowshoeing is also a great option if you don’t want to cross country ski. Either way, the air is cool, crisp, and the scenery is great. Get out and enjoy our local options!
