West of Bonners Ferry in the Panhandle National Forest, the Snow Creek Road area has 20 km of cross country skiing trails that are intermittently groomed. The trailhead is located 13 miles west of Bonners Ferry. There used to be a designated parking area that required an Idaho Park-N-Ski sticker, but this may not be the case anymore.

Overall, Snow Creek Loop is the 19th most popular cross country ski area of all 43 Nordic ski destinations in Idaho.
