I have gone to a few cross country skiing centers this winter. Truth to be told, this one has been my least favorite. It also felt the least homey. Weekends are busy there and the staff does not always take the necessary time to serve its clientele. Not to say that my family and I had a bad experience there,... More

We loved skiing at Cascades and having lunch there. Everyone is so nice. It feels so down to earth which bigger centers lack. Price is reasonable and they have very interesting trails to ski on. Would definitely go back

Very friendly stuff. Not as expensive as other places. It's probably too small for a serious X-C skier, we did the big loop in less than 2 hours. But it is connected to the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoevenburg. The center has a very nice cafe with good and reasonably priced food. Very nice place for novice skiers! Most... More

Went cross-country skiing with my family during Presidents week. Cascades is a low-key, friendly, relaxed X-C center that connects to the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoevenburg. Cascades prices are much lower than the "professional" areas, and unless you're a competition skier you'll not miss the difference. The center has a very helpful and friendly staff, a pleasant (and quick)... More

It was our first time cross country skiing. Place was nice, clean and staff helpful. Lodge was nice for a break and you can eat there. Trails well marked and everyone had a great time.

We had a blast! The15$ fee was worth every penny! We started snowshoeing about 730, on beautifully groomed and dimly lit trails. The lighting was perfect. It made the trail seem like the wilderness even though there were a quite a few people enjoying the night- snowshoes and cross country skiiers. There were two bon-fire/hotdog/keg areas. One even had a... More

We went up here a few weeks ago, very surprised as I had never been to any place like this before. It had a nice chalet for coming in afterwards for a few drinks at the bar and in front of the fireplace. The trails were groomed very well and were marked nicely. We were given a map when we... More

My wife and I were in town to enjoy some skiing and decided to come down to this place to try out Cross Country skiing. We were met by very friendly staff at the facilities and out instructor Teri was outstanding. I definitely recommend this place as great start to cross country skiing.
