About 8km/5mi from Houston, the Morice Mountain Nordic Ski Trails feature a number of loops good for both classic and skate skiing.

Routes vary from beginner-to-expert and short-to-long. Some trails allow dogs and other are lit for night skiing.

Morice Mountain Nordic Ski Trails

The trails, which surround two lakes, several streams and wetlands, are only a few minutes drive east of town. Facilities near the parking-lot include a day lodge fit with tables and a woodstove, a waxing hut and washrooms. Several first aid kits, small shelters, and more washrooms are also found along the trail.

A wood cabin on Morice Mountain, big enough to sleep eight people, is also available for overnight stays. Skiers can pay the small fee for the cabin at a local business called Country-wide Printing and Stationery, or at the day lodge. No advance booking is necessary but note the trail to the cabin is 7km/4.3mi long and not groomed.
