The BOC lease with the BCC only permits skiing and snowshoeing on designated trails. The BCC has asked us not to ski on the fairways and to keep our groomed trails on the “rough” parts of the golf course, with a few approved exceptions. Skiers can take their dogs on BOC groomed trails (Dog Trot) on the field adjacent to the golf course.* A new easy access dog-friendly trail to Dog-Trot is now available from the parking lot. Snowshoes are also permitted on Dog Trot and LabLand, but please avoid the groomed diagonal classic tracks.

The BOC has not approved biking or walking on any of our groomed trails.
Come join the BOCXC and ski/snowshoe with us.

*Dog Policy at BOC
We are excited to have two dog-friendly trails this year; Dog Trot and Lab Land. Please remember that dogs are required to be on-leash when in the parking lot and entry to the trail system to keep those areas orderly and safe for all of our human and canine guests. Once over the footbridge and into the trail system leashes are optional for dogs under voice command on our dog-friendly trails. These trails were selected intentionally to protect delicate areas of the golf course, so your help keeping dogs to those areas only is greatly appreciated.
The BOC has worked closely with the BCC to let us allow dogs on these two trails. This is a privilege that can be revoked if we do not adhere to our agreement to keep dogs on-leash in the parking area. It is important that we as a club honor this agreement so that you can continue to enjoy the trails with your dogs. It is important that all of us gently remind each other when we see unleashed dogs.
Volunteers sustain our club and its century-old tradition of serving the community by drawing its citizens outside to play. Our volunteer trail crews work hard to prep the trails in the fall and groom them all winter to provide the best skiing possible. Our program volunteers share their love of winter and being outside with school children by teaching them to embrace winter in all its conditions and have a blast doing so.
