This was my first time visiting Viking, and I was very impressed. This is a quintessential Vermont cross country ski area. The trails were well groomed and marked with plenty of variety. Very friendly staff. Tasty homemade soup in the cafe. Look forward to returning.

I’d like to more completely describe your group’s visit to our cross country ski center. In no way does bait and switch describe what happened; your group was not promised one rate and given another. In fact, your group was given our group discount even...More

Viking does indeed have some of the most beautiful trails in Vermont. A nice little cafe and a first rate ski shop with friendly folks. But... they do a poor job in grooming their trails outside of the core trails near the touring center. On...More

Lovely trails through the woods and across hilly fields. Lots of ups and downs. A good map handed out. Would be an improvement to have maps posted on the trails. Good warming hut. Friendly service.

Extensive trails of varying difficulty across mostly rolling terrain. They do a good job keeping trails open during low-snow times. You can purchase nice homemade sandwiches and soups.

Hi, thanks for your interest in coming to Viking. No you do not need reservations for a group of 4 although it's always a good idea to call the center before coming to get the latest ski conditions, 802-824-3933.
