DogFriendly.com's Top 10
Cross-Country Ski Resorts and Nordic Centers
February 2005

Click here for DogFriendly.com's  Cross-Country Ski Resorts Guide Almost 50 dog-friendly ski resorts throughout the United States.

Criteria for Ranking the Top 10 Dog-Friendly Cross-Country Ski Resorts and Nordic Centers

Our rankings are based on ski resorts or nordic centers that rent skis and have dog-friendly trails on the premises without having to load up people, dogs and skis into the car and drive to a trailhead. The resorts and centers may or may not have lodging on the premises. Ski resorts that allow both dogs on the trails and have dog-friendly lodging top our list. We judged almost 50 dog-friendly resorts throughout the United States to find the top ten. 

Side Trivia: Which states have the most dog-friendly cross-country ski resorts and centers?

Maine tops the list with 9 dog-friendly resorts or centers and Colorado comes in a close second with 7 dog-friendly resorts.
