Skiing at Elver Park
January 2017: Thanks to Madison Nordic Ski Club, Madison Winter Festival and Central Cross Country Ski Association we have a regularly groomed manmade snow loop at Elver - approximately km! With the exception of this manmade trail at Elver, ALL TRAILS - at Elver or elsewhere in Madison Parks ARE CLOSED (skiing is not permitted, remain off trails) until further notice.
A cross-country ski permit is required for this trail system. The West Trails are lighted trails for night skiing. These trails are groomed 3-5 times a week as conditions allow.
6.2 miles (3.7 lighted miles); groomed for skate/diagonal: easy to advanced
