The CXC projects to spend over $50,000 this winter for snowmaking and grooming. Depending on the type of snow coverage, the CXC offers two pass options:
Regular CXC Trail Ski Pass
(for trails with natural snow coverage)
A Regular CXC Trail Ski Pass is required for each person to ski on the 13-kilometer CXC Trail System from December 1st to March 15th. The pass provides access to the entire groomed CXC Trail, including cross-country ski trails on the Pleasant View Golf Course.
All-Access Snow Pass
(for trails with machine-made and natural snow coverage)
The All-Access Snow Pass provides access to the entire groomed CXC Trail, including cross-country ski trails on the Pleasant View Golf Course, and includes access to the machine-made snow loop that is groomed and tracked before there is enough natural snow to groom elsewhere. An All-Access Snow Pass, or daily pass, is required to ski on the machine-made snow loop at any time. The added revenue from the All-Access Snow Pass helps offset the costs of snowmaking and trail maintenance at the venue.
No person may use the CXC Trail System between December 1st and March 15th unless they have purchased a trail ski pass. CXC grants a revocable temporary license to access the CXC Trail System to the named holder of a trail ski pass.
We depend on the revenue from all ski passes to ensure that the CXC Trail system remains the No. 1 cross-country ski destination in Southern Wisconsin. Please ensure every skier in your family has the appropriate ski pass displayed visibly on them at all times while skiing.
