Fish Creek Meadows Nordic Park ‘n Ski
Just seven miles south of Grangeville on Grangeville Salmon Road, you’ll find Fish Creek Meadows Nordic Park n Ski. For cross-country skiers and snowshoers, Fish Creek Meadows offers double-tracked trails of one, three, four, five and seven miles. Fish Creek Meadows is uncrowded, pristine and offers scenic beauty that is out of this world.
A ski trail connects with Snowhaven where downhill skiing and snow board is a popular place to gather on the weekends. Snowhaven also offers a tube hill for fun that the entire family can enjoy, from toddlers to their grandparents.
The Fish Creek Park ‘n Ski is maintained by the Clearwater Ranger District of the Nez Perce National Forest under Idaho’s Parks and Recreation Dept.
An Idaho Department of Recreation Park ‘n Ski sticker is required to use the plowed trail head and parking lot. Locally, purchase your Park ‘n Ski stickers at Rae Brothers Sporting Goods on Main Street across from Cash and Carry, or at the Forest Service building out at Idaho County Airport.
A log cabin trail shelter with wood stove and large window is available for skiers on the Cabin Loop about three miles from Fish Creek. It provides a beautiful panorama of the Clearwater Mountains to the south.
The shelter is also accessible by trail from the top of Snowhaven Ski Area two miles north. This trail is not groomed, but is marked with blue diamonds.
