Very easy to find this beautiful place and we love the activities. If you have never gone cross-country skiing give this place a try. It's like hiking on roller skates...really long roller skates with oil-slick wheels! Beautiful trails.

We've visited this area a number of times over the years. The people are experts and thoroughly geared to cross-country skiing and now snowshoeing. Very good equipment for rentals. Funky, basic building for a lodge and center. Instructors are enthusiastic and competent. The new owners,...More

This was the first time we tried cross country skiing so we took the lesson--it was worth it. It is pretty easy to pick up the basics, but the instruction made a huge difference in our success on the trails.

There's a lot of activities to do in this area. You can go for snowmobile, sledging, tubing. Enchanted ski area is also big as well, and they are not expensive as well.
