Kate Creek Ski Trail #620

Post by christabrews » January 9th, 2021, 9:06 am

Does anyone know if the Kate Creek Ski Trail is owned by Teacup Nordic? It's not part of the resort map on the website, but there doesn't seem to be a parking area for it either.

I'm pretty sure that trail doesn't exist. It shows it as beginning at the long-decommissioned Clark Creek Sno-Park. Teacup trails are all south of the highway. You could ski the Elk Meadows Trail from there - this is a former route but I believe it's still marked by blue diamonds. It'll take you in short order up to the Clark Creek footbridge.

There used to be ski trails heading down across Clark Creek and then down Newton Creek but the infrastructure is gone from big washouts in the 1990s and 2006/07.

That used to be a great place to go. Quite extensive option of routes. Kate creek was one of my favorites, very sad when the floods disrupted that whole area.
