  • Best ever cross-country and skate skiing location, Very large with trails for all levels. Shop has rental gear and large selection of clothes and related equipment. It is also a Chevron gas station and stocks a lot of quick eats and basic necessities. Propane is also available. In summer months this a mountain bike hub with rentals and a full repair shop. Nearby lodging is available.
  • Great place for cross county or skate skiing. Few people, cute warming huts, beautiful vistas. Awesome place for kids and adults of all experience levels. No hassle, cheap rentals of nice equipment and a store stocked with essentials in case you forget them. Staff is knowledgeable and super nice. I love this place (especially since I'm too old and broken to hit the slopes these days). Just a chill spot to see some beautiful landscapes, get some exercise and spend the day with the fam.
  • Awesome experience! Everyone was really friendly and helpful. Paul, Jeff, cook at Meadow Cafe, etc. Highly recommended getting a lesson if you haven't tried xc skiing before. Lots of fun for the whole family!!
  • Small homey place to go cross country skiing. The trails are mostly easy.
  • Awesome place for snow ❄️ in winter season 😁👍
