Winter trails

Glide along our corduroy NORDIC TRAILS on classic or skate skis, trek through the trees and along Boulder Creek on SNOWSHOES, or hit the trails on a FAT BIKE. A sunny winter day is calling!

Winter trails are closed for the season.

Nordic Haven

Winter is a magical time at Jug Mountain Ranch. When the snow starts to fall, the golf course and biking trails are transformed into a Nordic paradise. JMR boasts more than 25 km of groomed trails for Nordic skiing, miles of fat bike specific trails, and ample space to explore on snowshoes. With terrain for every skill level and trails that wind through trees, along Boulder Creek, and up to the Jug Mountain Reservoir, you won’t run out of winter adventure.


All of our snowshoe and Nordic trails are also open to dogs!
