The Mt. Spokane Cross-Country Ski Park has almost 60 km (37 miles) of trails that range from easy to difficult. The main Selkirk Lodge has indoor plumbing, water, and tables. The Nova Hut has a wood stove and tables, and is a great destination or a resting point on the way to the far trails. Trails are groomed nightly, Wednesday through Sunday depending on sufficient snow base and other circumstances. The Cross-Country Ski Park and the Selkirk Lodge opens daily at 7:00 a.m. and closes at 10:00 pm.
Parking – A Sno Park Permit and a Special Groomed Trails Permit sticker are required for each vehicle, and are good for all passengers in the vehicle. Drivers are responsible for the Sno Park Permit. Riders will share the cost of the Special Groomed Trails Permit. The SGTP will stay with the driver after the trip is completed. The Snow Park Permit and SGTP contribute to a State fund that pays for snow plowing of roads and parking lots, the trail groomer and groomer operator, and other State Park winter maintenance expenses.
