Leadville Cross Country Ski Council, Inc.
This is a 14 Mile Loop around scenic Turquoise Lake. Check the grooming report and get up early. When you get first skate tracks this is OUTSTANDING!!!! It's worth a few tries to get the timing right. The loop features long moderate up hills and sweeping banked S turns on the clockwise downhills. Multi-user friendly so expect skiers, snowmobiles, bikers, and dogs. Trail runs both directions so you may face on-coming traffic. Parking lot at Leadville Junction and at the Turquoise Lake dam. Semi wilderness skate skiing, no short way back, bring a friend and gear.
