Great Snow Shoeing

It was my 1st time snow shoeing (couldn't ski because of a broken hand). I had always wanted to try it and found it very beautiful and a good workout. Rentals where easy.

Well maintained cross country ski center. Lots of people. Small incline going up with more thrilling side trails if you want. Beautiful view around lake Mary. Could use an area for picnics.

Good for families with little ones (by which I mean we had a 5 year old with us). Afternoon passes cost us $19 for children, $23 for adults. They provide snowshoes and poles. The trails and views are beautiful, serene... We snowshoed while it snowed... very cool, the kids loved it.... Take a backpack with water and snacks, you will... More

First off, cheers to Jessica who was ever so patient and cool answering all of my boyfriend's questions, who always has millions to ask. Thanks for shuttling us to and back, so we didn't have to walk with our skis. And thanks for giving us some pointers when we encountered you out on the trails. Cheers cheers and cheers. This...

We signed up for a lesson and day pass. Our teacher was very nice- Isaac! He taught us the basics and we were able to use the rest of the afternoon to hone our skills. The area is beautiful and romantic. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next day with a picnic lunch to eat by the... More

The lodge and the ski center are both great places to visit. The ski center has good rental equipment and excellent instructors. A lesson is a very good idea if you're just starting out. Do not be fooled; cross country skiing is no "softy's" sport. It's an intense, enjoyable workout which gies you access to some beautiful country.

The staff at Tamarack Cross Country Ski Center are the best! They take the time to explain everything - even first-timers like me felt confident to have fun! Their trails are amazing - so well groomed and cared for. Gotta love Tamarack!

A bit crowded and the parking lot is ramshackle but the skiing is beautiful. The seasonal lodge offers rentals
