Went cross-country skiing with my family during Presidents week. Cascades is a low-key, friendly, relaxed X-C center that connects to the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoevenburg... read more

This was my wife's very first time on skis and I had mostly downhill skiing experience. Thus, we decided to take a class ($25 for 1st person and $15 for an additional person). I'm glad we did. Our instructor Terry was amazing. He was very patient and understanding with my wife and could easily pinpoint my mistakes and habits from... More

Took the kids cross-country skiing. The staff was friendly and accommodating for us, as we have never been. The kids had a blast, spending four hours on the trails, and when I'd had enough, the bar was warm and friendly, and the food was good, with reasonable prices. We had a great day trying something new with teenagers for a... More

Love skiing here and the fact that you can go across to Mt. Van Hovenberg. The lodge is fun and inviting and they are very helpful in the ski shop. Very kid and novice skier friendly.

I have gone to a few cross country skiing centers this winter. Truth to be told, this one has been my least favorite. It also felt the least homey. Weekends are busy there and the staff does not always take the necessary time to serve its clientele. Not to say that my family and I had a bad experience there,... More

We loved skiing at Cascades and having lunch there. Everyone is so nice. It feels so down to earth which bigger centers lack. Price is reasonable and they have very interesting trails to ski on. Would definitely go back

Very friendly stuff. Not as expensive as other places. It's probably too small for a serious X-C skier, we did the big loop in less than 2 hours. But it is connected to the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoevenburg. The center has a very nice cafe with good and reasonably priced food. Very nice place for novice skiers! Most... More

Went cross-country skiing with my family during Presidents week. Cascades is a low-key, friendly, relaxed X-C center that connects to the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoevenburg. Cascades prices are much lower than the "professional" areas, and unless you're a competition skier you'll not miss the difference. The center has a very helpful and friendly staff, a pleasant (and quick)... More

It was our first time cross country skiing. Place was nice, clean and staff helpful. Lodge was nice for a break and you can eat there. Trails well marked and everyone had a great time.
