Discounted annual passes for the East Fork Mink Creek Nordic Center are available during the month of October. Located just 7 miles outside of Pocatello, East Mink Creek Nordic Center is a quality ski and snowshoe area. It hosts approximately 20K of groomed classic and skate trails. The Nordic Center is operated by the City of Pocatello through a special use permit with the United States Forest Service and through volunteer services of the Pocatello Cross-Country Ski Foundation (PXCSF). For updated information visit pokyxc.org. The area is staffed from 9am-3pm Monday-Thursday and 9am-5pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Skiers may use the trails at any time during the season by purchasing a season pass or by using the fee box at the parking lot.

They are perfect for scout outings, family camping trips, and evening potluck dinners. There is no running water or electricity. The Yurt is less than 100 yards from the parking lot. Trail passes are not included in your rental fee.

Come to our season kick-off event! Use our rental equipment at no charge or bring your own to avoid delays. Trail passes are free for the day and volunteer instructors give free mini lessons. We can equip about 80 people at a time, but we have run low on popular sizes in the past. Consider renting in advance from a ski shop in Pocatello to guarantee a stress-free day. Snowshoes are also available.
