Jackson Ski Touring Foundation presents state of the art grooming on trails designed to suit every taste and ability, whether you prefer quiet striding through old growth New England forest or all out skate skiing and an international race course. You can visit on-trail destinations: the warming cabin and Cocoa Café on the Ellis River Trail and numerous eateries and pubs and inns. All this is contained within a charming New England village that takes pride in its long established traditions of great skiing and warm hospitality. Foundation trails also connect with A.M.C. trails in Pinkham Notch and White Mountain National Forest backcountry adventure trails. The Foundation operates under a Special-Use Permit with the White Mountain National Forest, and with the cooperation of 76 private landowners, and the town of Jackson. The Foundation maintains a courtesy patrol to assist you on the trails if needed and rescue service staff trained and certified with the National Ski Patrol System (NSP).
Everyone using the trails must purchase a trail pass or be a season pass holder. Annual member benefits include: unlimited trail use for the season; a series of newsletters with current club programs and events; the Kilometer card program with incentives to ski new trails or more demanding distances; a comprehensive calendar of events; club member car window decal; free parking; use of day space and wax room.
Our educational programs include guided tours, technique workshops, children’s afterschool program, race volunteer workshops, use of sit-skis for disabled skiers, training for disabled skier guides, and waxing demonstrations.
The Foundation is an equal opportunity service provider and employer.
