We enjoyed two days of perfect cross country skiing! It was easy to get passes and the trails were well groomed. Friendly staff and skiers and all very Covid cautious.

A hidden gem in the Green Mts. Easy to access. Lots of well-groomed trails and some outer ungroomed trails. Never very crowded even on weekends.

Beautiful trails, friendly staff, delicious food, and bountiful sunshine! Explored a bunch of trails on a fat bike (rented at Rikert—great price for a 1-hr rental of a high-end bike, including helmet). Lot of Nordic skiers out on the trails as well. A must-visit if you you’re in the area and want to get outside for some fresh VT air and exercise!

This is the nicest XC center we have every visited. The trails are wide & beautifully groomed for both classic and skate skiing. The terrain is varied. There are woody hills and open flat fields. The conditions were amazing on all trails we skied. At one point, we had to take a break since the groomer was out ahead of us. they even have snow making on one big loop. Amazing! The lodge area is small but comfortable with room for your day bag and a place to eat lunch. They have a small amount of food available but I suggest bringing your lunch and snacks. One recommendation we offer. This place hosts a lot of college and high school races. These races can bring in a lot of people. They were setting up for a big race the day we were there and I am really happy we were not going to be there on race day. So, go enjoy the trails!
