Cross Country Ski Montana is your one-stop location for great information about Montana's outstanding cross country ski trails and areas (classic and skate), Nordic ski clubs, and supporting ski shops. The app is easy-to-use, all-in-one, and requires no data connection!
Cross Country Ski Montana is intuitive.—We want you to spend your skiing, not learning how to use our app! The app works with your phone or tablet's GPS, and is built on a Google Maps interface we've all used. That interface includes links for to answer the simplest yet most critical: Where should I go skiing? And how do I get there? Just click on "directions" and you are good to go. Instead of awkwardly digging through paper maps while drive, you can spend your time on the way to the trailhead getting warm!
Cross Country Ski Montana is comprehensive.—We've included designated cross country ski area in the state, on both public and private lands, plus dozens of local popular favorite trails. Additionally, the app highlights every ski club in Montana, and the good work they do maintaining so many of the trails, and the outdoor industry stores across the state that supply the XC community.
Cross Country Ski Montana needs no connection and doesn't ask you to pay for add-on info.—Importantly, we've designed the app so that it works whether you have cellular coverage or not. That's a nice feature when you're on a snowy backcountry road looking for the trailhead, but, ugh, uncertain where your headed! Once you're at the XC ski area, local trail maps (if available) are incorporated into the app; again, no need for connectivity to download. It's all there--we don't ask you to download a different map every time you head out; nor will we ask you to buy maps, or anything else, once you own the app.
Cross Country Ski Montana answers your questions.—Like you, we love cross country skiing so we've included answers to those questions we all have when heading out with our skinny skis on the roof. We provide you trail maps, when available, for each area so you can study the loop trails, distances, and level of difficulty in advance. We are laser focused on providing you the best information available. The app answers questions for each area like:
Is there a fee or is it free?
Is the area groomed? If so, is it groomed for classic skis, skate skis, or both?
Who does the grooming? How do I get the latest conditions report?
How many kilometers (miles) of trail are there?
Who owns the land -- is it public or private?
Who manages the area? The Forest Service, National Park Service, a ski club, or is it a partnership between groups?
How do I contact the group managing the area?
Are dogs allowed?
How do I get there?
Are there ski shops nearby for rentals or repairs?
Cross Country Ski Montana answers all of these questions and more!
Thank you!--We thank you for buying Cross Country Ski Montana, and hope you enjoy the Montana snow!
