Bedford Cross-Country Ski Club

About Us

Saturday January 21st we will be holding the Souhegan Sprints nordic ski race at Legacy.  Start is at 10:00 am and runs through most of the day.  We got snow last night and will be grooming the ball fields and connectors for the race.  Temperatures will be above freezing Thursday and Friday so we urge you to not use these trails in the interest of keeping the trails in skiable condition and for the safety of the racers on Saturday.  Thank you for your cooperation.

The race is on!!

You can access Chesterfield and Powder Hill loops from Chesterfield road.  We will not be grooming these trails as there still is not enough snow for proper coverage.  Please feel free to use Chesterfield Loop and Powder Hill for back-country style skiing and snowshoeing.


As always the Benedictine Park , Joppa Hill Farm , Pulpit Rock all in Bedford, and Joe English Reservation in Amherst are all great winter trail alternatives for snow shoeing and walking your dog.


We managed to pull off a successful high school race today (1-5-2017).  We worked hard to move snow and groom the trails and had over 100 students participate.  A great cry out to the public who frequent the trails but kindly stayed off of them for the past few days while the rain fell and the temperatures rose.


The Bedford Cross-Country Ski Club was created in 1996 by an enthusiastic group of local nordic skiers wanting to establish a ski club for those with a shared passion for cross-country skiing in southern New Hampshire.  Since then, our club has grown significantly and today provides ski instruction, equipment, a warming hut for skiers during the ski season and trails for local skiing right in town at Legacy Park.

The Legacy Park 5km Nordic Ski Trail System is maintained and groomed by Bedford Cross-Country Ski Club volunteers.  Over 100 area high school and middle school Nordic racers practice on the trails, as well as host local races.  Every Sunday the Club runs its  “Bill Koch League” which introduces children to cross-country skiing in a fun and supportive environment.  Depending on age and ability, a variety of coached groups for novice and competitive skiers up to 8th grade are run by Club volunteer coaches.

Legacy Park is open to the skiing public as well.
