We spent two days skiing at Jackson over the MLK weekend- Friday and Saturday. We were not even sure there would be skiing Friday and were very pleasantly surprised. The staff had wisely opted to only groom a few trails in the woods up on Carter Notch Road and they were beautiful. We skied the Boggy Brook Trail. It was... More

Took the intro class for only $8 more than rental/pass and it was really worth it. Very enjoyable even though the skiing conditions were poor due to a thaw/freeze.

Over the xmas holiday, we spent 2 afternoons on the xc trails. Enjoyed visiting the cocoa cabin. Our main issue is that the rental equipment made for a painful experience. We hadn't visited here for about 6 years. The new equipment is extremely narrow with boots that have no ankle support. Both times, the trails didn't have groomed tracks so... More

Jackson does a great job of grooming their far flung trail network on 150+ km of trails, hitting the right balance of service, yet keeping costs manageable. We skied here on New Years Weekend 2016-17 and luckily they got dumped with about 16" of snow on the Thursday By Saturday we had some of the best skiing ever and most... More

A very well run crossing country skiing outfitter. Trails are well maintained and rental equipment top notch. Trails to fit everyone's skill level.

Jackson Ski Touring, an honest to god non-profit which utilizes the land of the town, the U.S. Forest Service and private landowners, provides a diverse mix of nordic/ cross country skiing. They have several state of the art grooming machines and the pros that know how to use them. Snow gods permitting, the trails are pristine and can lead to... More

I have been x-c skiing at Jackson Ski Touring since the early 1990's. I couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting. My children have taken skate skiing lessons from the super-friendly staff. Our whole family loves the Ellis River trail. The warming hut with its steaming hot cocoa is such a nice destination for the kids. There is a wonderful... More

Decided not to cancel our annual trip to Jackson because of lack of snow. Instead, took our ice grippers and decided to hike instead. Stopped at the visitor's center and spoke with their knowledgeable staff who had a wonderful suggestion! She sent us to the Prospect Farm trail system and suggested we hike out the Marsh Brook trail until we... More

Our family enjoys cross country skiing and I can't believe we haven't been here before this winter. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It's been such a challenge for them due to uncooperative weather. The front desk staff knew exactly where to direct us on their extensive trail system for the best conditions. I would be great if they could... More

Our kids learned how to ski here when they were young. We're still skiing here three decades later. None better. With the challenging snow conditions this winter, these folks have done their best to make the experience worthwhile. We snowshoed one day and XC the next. Th staff at the center were helpful, suggesting best trails given the unfortunate conditions.

Thank PAWms
