South Ridge Cross Country Skiing

The 23rd most popular XC Ski in Wyoming.

West of Jackson and Wilson at Teton Pass, the South Ridge cross country ski route climbs an unplowed powerline access road towards the ridge. After the road ends, the route climbs south through open bowls and stands of trees and eventually summits a higher ridge for vistas of the expansive Snake River Range. Avalanche danger is high.

Overall, South Ridge is the 23rd most popular cross country ski area of all 26 Nordic ski destinations in Wyoming.
