  • Site Description: The Dacha Shelter is approx. 1430 meters elevation. The Marshall Lake (Phoenix) cross country ski area is nestled in the south Monashees near the historic town site of Phoenix. The ski area offers approximately 35 km of trail, most of which are groomed or track set. The Dacha (hut) has a postcard view of the distant mountains, a portion of highway 3, and the nearby Phoenix Ski Hill. The trails are dog friendly and contain a recently built 500 m novice loop, other novice friendly trails, intermediate and advanced trails, and rustic adventures for the experienced skier seeking challenge. The trail system also includes the old ski hill, which fostered Mini Engen (one time world champion ski jumper) and today it is frequented by telemark skiers honing their skills.

  • Driving Directions: To reach the trails from Grand Forks, drive west on highway #3 for 20 km, turn left on the Phoenix road as if you were going to Phoenix ski hill. Zero your odometer here, and proceed up the road till you reach the phoenix ski hill sign at 5.5 km, take a left here (don�t go to ski hill). At 8.3 km you will reach a fork, stay right. At 8.5 km take a right on Marshall Lake road and drive past the cenotaph statue. Find the parking lot for the cross country ski trails at 9.5 km.
