U.S. Forest Service

The Echo Ridge Nordic Ski Area on the Chelan Ranger District opened Dec. 15 for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Due to the recent snow fall, Echo Ridge is opening almost a month earlier than last season. December snow has provided good conditions for trail packing and grooming.
In conjunction with the opening of Echo Ridge, there will be limited road closures to wheeled vehicles to provide for Nordic grooming. All trailheads in the Echo Ridge Nordic Ski Area will be plowed and open for parking Come cross country ski or snowshoe the gentle rolling terrain and enjoy the scenic views from over twenty-five miles of winter trails.
Ski passes are required for ski and snowshoe trail use at Echo Ridge. Day passes are available on-site for $10 per adult, with no charge for skiers or snow shoers age 17 and under. Season passes are available for $70 at the Chelan Ranger District office at 428 West Woodin Avenue in Chelan with office hours of 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
