Giant White Pine Nordic Area

The 19th most popular cross country ski area in Idaho.

In the Giant White Pine Area, there are numerous moderate to difficult cross country ski trails in this area ranging from one to eighteen miles in length depending on which trail you take. The best place to start is at the Giant White Pine campground. Forest service trail 26 is a good trail to begin with. Most of the ride away from the Giant White Pine campground is uphill but the descent is well worth the grind. You can head up one trail and make the descent on another by cutting over to the next trail via Palouse Divide Road which is right by the North/South Ski bowl. The best part about this area is that it is undiscovered and the single track trails are well maintained. This area is approximately 40 miles north of Washington State University and 30 miles north of the University of Idaho.

Overall, Giant White Pine Nordic Area is the 19th most popular cross country ski area of all 43 Nordic ski destinations in Idaho.
