Viking Nordic Center's acclaimed trail system winds through beautiful Vermont countryside, with scenic vistas, past beaver ponds and along the West River. The trails offer something for everyone. Our 35 kilometers of ski trails are groomed for both skate skiing and classic skiing and offer terrain for all abilities. We also offer 4 kilometers of dedicated snowshoe trails. All of our trails are open to fat bikers based on snow conditions. Kids of all ages can search for cookie stations on the trails and claim a sweet reward in our cozy cafe when they've found them all. We also offer night skiing, group and individual lessons, and equipment rentals.

We had a large group and had called ahead asking if there was a discounted rate for a large group. We were told there would be but when we arrived the discounted rate was higher then the senior rate and they refused to honor the discounted rate for the rest of the group who were not seniors. The credit card... More

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 though you did not meet the requirements for it. We would have liked to have... 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 President's Day they posted all trails were groomed and tracked. Not true. Substantial portions of... More

Thank you for this feedback. We investigated the situation and found that we make a mistake grooming on Presidents Day. Based on your review we have made a change at the center. Please let me explain the mistake we made on President’s Day. That morning our 2 groomers headed out from the center on different paths to groom different sections... More

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.

We took a number of trails and a guided full moon hike. The guides were excellent. The stayed with those that fell behind and moved faster for those in the front. During the day the trails are well marked and the trail map helps to see where you are. They also have lessons and Xcountry skiing.

We got the chance to XC ski and do the full moon snowshoe hike today. The staff was very courteous with our questions on some of our own equipment. Had some good chili for lunch. A friendly group lead the snowshoe hike at night. Hot cocoa and great cookies!
