Beautiful trails, we saw multiple ice climbers on the cliffs. Everything was well groomed and maintained. Trails were mostly flat but had a few fun hills to go down (around the challenge course). The lodge was really warm and beautiful and it looked like it had a cool restaurant to hangout at. I'd go again for sure.
This was my first experience with cross country skiing so I decided to take a lesson to avoid breaking anything. The most important aspect of the Nordic Center is how knowledgeable and friendly the staff is. The instructor was patient and kind when correcting my clumsy mistakes, and I felt comfortable trekking out on my own after the class. There are multiple trails for varying skill levels, with spectacular mountain views adding zen to the already serene experience. A must do when visiting Vail.
