East of Golden and northeast of Field, the closed Yoho Valley Road is track set for cross country skiing beyond Monarch Campground to the base of the switchbacks near Takakkaw Falls under Daly Glacier (7 km one-way). The Takakkaw Falls Campground is open in the winter and is a good lunch point. Continuing northwest up the switchbacks, watch out for several avalanche paths on the slopes of Mt. Wapta. After 3.8 km, turn west at Laughing Falls up the Little Yoho River to the ACC Stanley Mitchell Hut near Kiwetinok Pass (5.4 km). The total round trip is 44.4 km.
Overall, Yoho Valley is the 16th most popular cross country ski area of all 56 Nordic ski destinations in British Columbia.
