Comments

We received about three inches of snow on Saturday, which is enough to open the flatter/easier trails for skiing.  These trails have been groomed.  The more difficult trails have not been groomed and we advise against skiing on these trails due to fast conditions and possible thin cover.  A few more inches of snow will be required before the hillier trails will be safe & enjoyable for skiing.  All trails are open for snowshoeing,

We believe that taking a lesson will greatly enhance anyone's understanding & enjoyment, will minimize the frustration that can be associated with learning something new, and will give you the confidence to explore more of the trail network.  Our "We Love Beginner's" special includes a one-hour group lesson, equipment rental, and use of the trails for the remainder of the day for just $38.  The group lesson takes place at 10 am on Saturdays & Sundays.  Advance reservations are recommended.  Private lessons are also available at mutually convenient times.
