Spruces Nordic ski trail is a free 5K loop in the US Forest Service Spruces campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is groomed several times each week. It is a very pretty track through the trees, with loops that are fun and challenging for experienced skiers and areas that are fun for children and novices.

This is watershed. No dogs on the trails or in your car.

The Spruces weather station is right next to the track. It has information on temperature and snow depth.

    Groomed and set classic track today. Track cleaned up pretty well despite icy conditions. Sunny and a great day for skiing when we left. We are getting a thin spot on the north side of Nursery Meadows Loop, under a tree, where it gets sun all day. Be careful on that portion. Hopefully we can get some new snow soon.
