Thank you for your kind words AND for being proactive in making your visit enjoyable and fulfilling by taking a lesson and making sure that your skis were waxed. Here's hoping your schedule allows you to visit again this season.

Great family friendly cross country skiing spot. All levels of skiers and novices can have fun and enjoy making new friends, or not, while exploring the trails. The Story Book trail is especially great for younger and newer skiers of all ages.

A great town and cross country ski area. Snow can be an issue, but not to stay or eat.If the snow is skimpy drive up the valley to Prospect Farm.
