Cross Country Skiing

During the winter months, we’re best known for our vast Nordic skiing trails. With 15km of groomed terrain (5k of which has snowmaking capabilities), we’ve got some of the best skiing in southern Vermont.


Strap on your snowshoes and head out on miles of trails. Trust us — there’s no better way to experience a Vermont winter than a leisurely tromp through our winter wonderland.


Take a leisurely (but still thrilling) approach to winter, and glide across the Ponds aboard our snow tubes.
