Great scenery and well prepared tracks.

Great scenery and well prepared tracks. They are doing a nice job preparing the tracks, even with little snow. Not a bad way to get a good workout in.

Since I wasn't allowed to ski my Doc suggested snowshoe or nordic( cross country). So the first day we tried snowshoe at the Nordic center aka golf cours. There is a very small charge for rental and they fit you. Don't wear great boots as the strapping will rub on them. We had a lot of fun and walked a... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the cross country ski trails at Vail. It was only my third time doing this sport and it is great exercise. The trails were groomed along the sides but no tracks were present in the middle. Cost not nearly as outrageous as a lift ticket for downhill skiing at Vail so you don't feel like you need... More

This is a great place to go if you want to learn or do some cross-country skiing... I had never been and the instruction was excellent and I liked being on the golf course.. Bus stops right in front and staff all very accommodating. I highly recommend if you want to try something different in Vail...

I finally had an opportunity to try cross-country skiing on our just-completed family vacation at Vail. While the grandkids were in ski-school I took my five adult family members to the Nordic Center at Golden Peak. I had already had a great phone conversation with Joe, the director, because my group included my wife, daughter, and daughter-in-law. Our original plan... More

No one in our family has every cross-country skied before but they made it very easy to strap on some skis and try it out. The people there were very helpful it was loads of fun.

My wife and I had never cross-country skied before so we signed up for a lesson here. Stephanie was our instructor and she did a great job teaching us some very important fundamentals and getting us out on the course to practice our new found skills. She was very patient, encouraging and kept the learning very fun. There is plenty... More

The snow thickness is less than Breckenridge for instance during the Thanksgiving week. Easy location to find, just off of the interstate. Not crowded if you arrive early. Equipment is of good quality and the value is good for what you pay. You are on your own and need to have some experience if you wander off of the flat... More

The Vail bus from the transportation center is a quick ride out to the nordic center. I took my own snowshoes, however you can rent them there. The trail is well groomed and a peace place to be (once your tune the I-70 in the distance out). If you what to spend a little more energy step to the side... More
