If you've never cross-country skied, this is the place for you! Our instructor was patient, kind and incredibly helpful. There are lots of trails to try with varying degrees of difficulty. The food inside is good and there's a fireplace and good beer on tap.

Went there to try snowshoeing on Christmas day. There are few really beautiful trails just for snowshoeing. You walk through snow covered pine trees. Very beautiful. There is really nice restaurant inside with full bar inside if you need to warm up.
