Wondeful place. We keep going back. My experience has always been that there is darn little, effectively no cell service up there, and it has to stay that way because of a nearby research center, that needs the airspace to be cell phone free. Same problem for businesses along hwy 32 nearby. Let me know if that's changed. We use... More

This place has miles of trails and Chip and his team work to keep as much as possible open. They have a rentals for x-c skiing, telemark, skate-skiing, snow shoes. The repair and sell used and new skis, boots, polls, and clothing (well not used clothing). They also give a variety of lessons. Chip "farms" snow, which means that he... More

To put it simply....This is one of the best places to cross country ski period. The gear shop has all you need and the café has some of the best food anywhere. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Go there and experience life as it is meant to be.

Great backcountry style XC skiing to be had at Whitegrass. Lodge and cafe are just the right vibe of lowkey funkiness filled with smiling employees and skiers alike. Skip the lift-served skiing and go exploring at Whitegrass this winter, you won't be disappointed.

I hadn't been on skis in 25+ years, and hardly knew what I was doing then. My son had never been on skis. Plus, we're from Florida... We don't see much snow! Everyone was friendly and helpful, whether they were staff or just local skiers. We were only there for a few hours at the very end of the season,... More

We try to get out here several times over the winter. Great trails, warm vibe, really tasty food at the cafe. You can x-c ski, snowshoe, or telemark ski on 50k of trails here. Wonderful place that seems almost lost in time, in a good way.

I went to White Grass specifically to learn to Cross Country Ski because I hurt myself trying to learn the ski a little, fall, get up and ski some more approach. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They not only got me up and moving on skis they also got my wife who had no interest in skiing up... More

This place is made out of pure love of skiing. The place deals with skiing the way it was invented in the Nordic countries, as a way of moving from one place to another on the snow. It reminds me of how I learnt to ski in Norway many years ago on skis that were a hybrid between telemark and... More

Second time I've been at Whitegrass, about the 4th time for my wife. We love it (when there's snow!). The ski center/cafe is about as low key and relaxed as you can find anywhere. We skied midweek so were not there when the hundreds of others crowded the lodge area. The cross country trails are meticulously groomed and the views... More
