Royal Gorge is open for cross-country skiing

Royal Gorge Cross Country, North America’s largest cross country resort, opened for the season on Monday, December 9.

The resort offers about 40 kilometers of groomed cross country trails for skiers after more than 20 inches of new snow fell on the resort over the weekend.

When fully open, Royal Gorge has over 200 kilometers of trails on approximately 6,000 acres of terrain that stretches from the open expanse of Van Norden Meadow to the foot of majestic Devil’s Peak. It is connected to Sugar Bowl Resort by an “interconnect trail” that leads skiers through Van Norden Meadows.

Tickets, rentals and other guest services will be offered at the Summit Station Lodge. All-day, adult lift tickets are $28. Skiers can receive a $5 discount on a Royal Gorge trail passes every day throughout the season by purchasing a $21 CORE pass.
