The Bitterroot Cross-Country Ski Club is a non-profit, non-partisan, public-interest corporation whose purpose is to benefit the public by promoting Nordic (cross-country) skiing and other outdoor recreational activities by educating the public about the health and recreational benefits of such activities, and by assisting appropriate public authorities in the management and operation of the Chief Joseph Cross-Country Ski Area.

Club Membership

You do not have to be a member of our Club to ski the Chief Joseph Trails, but we certainly hope you will join.  Grooming ski trails costs money.  Annual Membership Dues, donations from skiers (donation boxes are located at the trailhead and in the Gordon Reese Cabin), and support from area businesses and organizations help offset the cost of weekly grooming.

Individual ($15)  –  Family ($25)
Supporting Individual ($30)  –  Supporting Family ($40)

You might also consider making an additional donation to the Club.  Funds are always needed to pay for grooming the trails at Chief Joseph Pass.

———————————————————————————————————————IF you are not a Club member, you may not be aware that many of the funds that support grooming the trails at Chief Joseph Pass come from grants.  Grants are often based upon the number of people who ski on the trails.  Verification for the number of people skiing at the pass comes from the sign-in sheets kept at the trailhead.  Visitor sign-ins are extremely important and support the ability of our Club to continue receiving funds from grants.
