Cross Country Skiing
Cross Country Skiing is a great way to stay active in the winter months! Washington County grooms ski trails when conditions allow.
Permits and Passes
New this year, Washington County Parks no longer supports the Greater MN Ski Pass. Skiers must now purchase the Washington County ski pass. Passes can be purchased online, at a pay station, or at a park office. We will honor those who have a 3 year DNR ski pass for the upcoming season.
