This was my first time visiting Viking, and I was very impressed. This is a quintessential Vermont cross country ski area. The trails were well groomed and marked with plenty of variety. Very friendly staff. Tasty homemade soup in the cafe. Look forward to returning.

Beautiful trials. Patient & knowledgeable staff who are dedicated and experienced. Down-home kind of place run by people who seem to care that you have a good time.

Lovely trails through the woods and across hilly fields. Lots of ups and downs. A good map handed out. Would be an improvement to have maps posted on the trails. Good warming hut. Friendly service.

Extensive trails of varying difficulty across mostly rolling terrain. They do a good job keeping trails open during low-snow times. You can purchase nice homemade sandwiches and soups.
