As a nonprofit organization, the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation (Jackson XC) provides recreational and competitive opportunities for cross country skiing and snowshoeing that enrich lives and promote healthy lifestyles for all.
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 New England forests or all out skate skiing on an international race course. This 100 kilometer trail network through forest and farmland is woven into the fabric of this classic New England ski village with a heritage of skier 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 passholder.
