Lone Mountain Ranch is a rare bird in cross-country and snowshoeing circles. Not only are there 85 km (51 mi) of groomed trails, but the network is superb, with everything from a flat, open, golf-course layout to tree-lined trails with as much as 1,600 feet of elevation gain (and loss). Much of the trail network provides a genuine sense of woodsy mountain seclusion. If there is a drawback, it's that moose sometimes wander onto the trails. Big Sky, MT. 406/995-4644 or 800/514-4644. www.lmranch.com.
