Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing opportunities exist on both the middle and south forks of Bishop Creek. The roads typically have winter closure gates located at the Bishop Creek Lodge (south fork) and just past the community of Aspendale on the middle fork. At these closure locations it is possible to park and ski/snowshoe beyond the gate.
Care must be taken to note the avalanche danger as both locations have a history of slides when the avalanche danger is elevated.
There is also a popular undeveloped snow play area with a sledding hill at the parking area for the Forks Campground, which is just past the turn off for the South Fork of Bishop Creek.
