“Fabulous place to try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This eco-friendly, off-the-grid centre is the place to go in Flagstaff if you want to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.

I had never tried either but got the hang of both pretty quickly (my knees preferred the snowshoes!) and can see the addictive nature in either of these sports.

You can rent your gear from the yurt behind the main office and just head off onto the trails.

The trails are well marked and groomed so all you have to do is enjoy yourself.

They are careful with the environment and it shows in the pristine wilderness and crystalline snow all around.

It's an easy 15-20 minute drive from Flagstaff downtown and just the drive up is great.

You go through little towns and areas of wilderness, seeing the San Francisco Peaks rising above everything majestically.

I highly recommend this centre for near Flagstaff outdoor activities.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not really sure what there is to do here. We certainly didn't find anything that was even the least bit interesting.

“groomed ski trails!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We rented skis here when the snow thinned out on our favorite golf course in Flagstaff. Groomed trails were a treat and the modern skis and boots have us looking forward to replacing our very old equipment.

“Really nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Took our toddler camping for the first time but wanted to avoid the October cold night. Their cheap cabins were the perfect solution! They have bunk beds and a double bed, a wood burning stove, tables and chairs, a trash can and a fire ring, bbq, and bench and picnic table outside. Lodge close by has pay showers and firewood at a reasonable price. Close enough to flagstaff to make a day trip. Only downside was cabins are a bit close to a road in the Summer, but there are lots of trails to explore nearby.
