Awesome time!

A very well run crossing country skiing outfitter. Trails are well maintained and rental equipment top notch. Trails to fit everyone's skill level.

Jackson Ski Touring, an honest to god non-profit which utilizes the land of the town, the U.S. Forest Service and private landowners, provides a diverse mix of nordic/ cross country skiing. They have several state of the art grooming machines and the pros that know how to use them. Snow gods permitting, the trails are pristine and can lead to... More

I have been x-c skiing at Jackson Ski Touring since the early 1990's. I couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting. My children have taken skate skiing lessons from the super-friendly staff. Our whole family loves the Ellis River trail. The warming hut with its steaming hot cocoa is such a nice destination for the kids. There is a wonderful... More

Decided not to cancel our annual trip to Jackson because of lack of snow. Instead, took our ice grippers and decided to hike instead. Stopped at the visitor's center and spoke with their knowledgeable staff who had a wonderful suggestion! She sent us to the Prospect Farm trail system and suggested we hike out the Marsh Brook trail until we... More

Our family enjoys cross country skiing and I can't believe we haven't been here before this winter. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It's been such a challenge for them due to uncooperative weather. The front desk staff knew exactly where to direct us on their extensive trail system for the best conditions. I would be great if they could... More

Our kids learned how to ski here when they were young. We're still skiing here three decades later. None better. With the challenging snow conditions this winter, these folks have done their best to make the experience worthwhile. We snowshoed one day and XC the next. Th staff at the center were helpful, suggesting best trails given the unfortunate conditions.

We tried cross country skiing at Jackson Ski Touring and had a BLAST. The people are great, the rental equipment was like new. We took a lesson and our instructor Lauren did a great job getting us out on the trail. We spent the afteroon on our own. We went out the Ellis river trail to the cocoa hut and... More

My husband and I decided to follow through on an old wish to try XC Skiing. We were a little nervous since we had both had just one previous experience more than 20 years ago, so we planned to visit Jackson Ski Touring Foundation to get the 411. This was an excellent place to get started! The staff were friendly,... More

This is a great way to spend a day outdoors. You can take a lesson if you've never skied. Snowshoes are also available. Prices are very reasonable and extensive trails. Also food and drink options off of some of the trails.

We skied two days this past weekend with horrible snow conditions. We were surprised there were any trails open but we skied the Ellis River trail on Friday. It wasn't great but was very good for what the facility had to work with. We will return next year to hopefully better snow conditions.
