Nine Mile Forest is one of the top cross-country skiing facilities in Wisconsin.

The 18.3 mile (29.6km) trail system is double tracked with an 8′ wide skating lane. Trail difficulty ranges from beginner to difficult making this trail system attractive to all skiing abilities. Trails are generally one-way.  The ski chalet offers a changing area, ski and snowshoe equipment rentals, daily and annual trail passes, restrooms, and a spacious warming area with a wood stove.  There are 3.9 miles (6.3km) of ski trails lighted and programmed to go on at dusk until 9 pm daily during the ski season.  There are also 5.3 miles (8km) of groomed snowshoe trails throughout the forest.

From Wausau take I-39/US 51 south to CTH N, west on CTH N 3-½ miles to Red Bud Road, south on Red Bud Road 1-½ miles to the chalet parking lot on the right.
