We stayed almost a week at the Inn in the middle of winter for a cross country ski vacation. The whole experience was wonderful. It was great to be able to walk to the ski trails from our caboose, which was also close to the Inn. No driving was necessary once we got there. The caboose we stayed in, X215, was great. Absolutely have to compliment the skiing. The trails were well groomed and very enjoyable terrain. Mark, the ski pro was also very gracious in responding to us and making recommendations. Though we didn't take a day tour with him, we observed all levels of tours being offered throughout the week and the price is a great value for a days worth of guided backcountry skiing. Anyone looking for a very relaxing cross country or backcountry ski vacation should absolutely consider Izaak Walton Inn for a unique experience in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And the ability to hop on a train and get off right at the Inn is phenomenal. Though we drove there, I would definitely take the train the next time. It's just too convenient.
