Bemrose Ski Circus


In Europe the term “Ski Circus” is used for alpine areas which are connected by a network of lifts and trails, many times allowing the skier to ski from town to town. The Bemrose Ski Circus has a series of inter-connecting cross-country skiing trails for all ability levels. Some of the trails on this map are routes in winter only. The area’s low potential for avalanches makes it an attractive area for beginner/intermediate skiers.
