Helpful rental staff, took their time with you. Trail markings could have been clearer otherwise great scenery even if crowded on a holiday weekend. We've skied their competitor Great Glen and those trails are better: more wooded..

Lots of well groomed trails for every ability. Best to get there as early as possible to avoid lines especially if you are renting.

we used to do the Ellis River trail to Dana Place Inn, over 20 years ago. While Dana Place has closed, this trail is still excellent and well-maintained, and offer about 15 km roundtrip of easy to intermediate skiing.

My first time cross country skiing. The lesson was wonderful and after about an hour the instructor set us free on the trails. A nice option, much cheaper than down hill. It was so wonderful to get outside for the day in the middle of...More
