Cross-Country Skiing

Enjoy the serene setting at Arrowhead Golf Club!

An economical winter sport providing hours of fun and exercise for all ages…

This low impact sport offers the health benefits of aerobic exercise and assists in burning calories and building muscles. Arrowhead Golf Club offers groomed trails and rental equipment. There’s no trail fee. Skiing is allowed on the golf course in groomed areas only, not in roped off areas. Skiers also have the opportunity to use the Herrick Lake Forest Preserve trails.

Safety First! Remember–Green means GO & Red means NO

The course is available for skiers when the flag just to the west of the Arrowhead Pro Shop is green and closed when the flag is red. A six-inch base and safe conditions are required for skiing.
