Ski Trails For Dogs
Methow Trails proudly allows dogs on selected trails in the Methow Valley. It is a program that we have run for years and, despite a dog’s inability to talk, anyone who has ever seen a dog out on the ski trails can’t deny the joy it brings to these animals. It is contagious.


Dog are welcome on these trails in the Valley:

While dogs are not humans, they do have the same impact on trails as skiers and, in some cases. a slightly greater impact. In order to keep our four-legged facilities top- notch for both dogs and skiers the Methow Valley has a dog pass program. Dog owners must purchase a $50 annual pass at the Methow Trails office or a $10 day pass from any ski pass vendor and agree to the “Conditions of Use”. All dogs must wear their numbered pass at all times while on the ski trails. Now they can proudly display their allegiance to the trails, just like skiers. Funds from the dog pass program help Methow Trails maintain and enhance the skiing infrastructure. Below are some of the conditions of use that every pet owner needs to know. Thanks for your support.

Conditions of Use (Skiers with Dogs)

As the dog owner you are responsible and liable for your dog's behavior and actions. Failure to abide by the conditions of use may result in the loss of trail passes. If your dog wanders or is excited, please keep your dog in your vehicle or on leash while getting your gear ready or when near a trailhead.
