We actually were here December 2010. There was a ton of snow that year. Neither of us had ever cross country skied before, and we had an excellent experience. We had an instructor to ourselves for a few hours - he was patient and very thorough. Then we had the rest of the day to explore the trails at our leisure. Very relaxing!

I loved skiing there! There are over 50 km of trails, from beginners to difficult. The staff was nice, the atmosphere in the chalet cozy and friendly, the cafeteria offered a good selection of food. Highly recommended!

Fantastic trail system, built for the Olympics. Excellent grooming with much machinery and manpower. The best XC skiing in the area. You can't go wrong.
