I took my first xc ski lesson with Sue Wemyss, she was fantastic! The conditions were great and it was a great experience. I would recommend it for any beginner, novice or expert. My husband skate skis and loves the trails too!

Glad you had a nice walk. The trails are there to enjoy on foot at no charge from May through October. Once we get into the winter months, we have SUPER trails for skiing here. And offer lessons. Hope to see you back then. -Nate
