  • We enjoyed two days of perfect cross country skiing! It was easy to get passes and the trails were well groomed. Friendly staff and skiers and all very Covid cautious.

  • A hidden gem in the Green Mts. Easy to access. Lots of well-groomed trails and some outer ungroomed trails. Never very crowded even on weekends.

  • Very great customer service. Helpful. They have boots, skis, snowshoe, and fat tire biking. Lots of trails to enjoy. The location is not far from the city and college campus. The City of Middlebury. A few miles away there is also the Snow bowl for skiing and a chair lift.
  • Really well run facility with a cozy vibe. Lots of trails when there is enough snow. My one gripe is that fat bikes are permitted on the Nordic trails and tend to gouge out the perfect grooming leaving ruts in an otherwise great trail.
