Our trails:

Classical Cross Country Skiing -

Twenty-five kilometers of trails ranging from gently rolling groomed and track-set loops to challenging back-country routes await skiers of all abilities. Designed specifically for classic skiing, our trails are generally too narrow in flatter areas to accommodate skate skiing. A favorite destination is the summit of Lone Boulder Hill, where a large glacial boulder stands guard near a breathtaking 3 state vista. Don't let the lack of snow in your backyard fool you; high elevation here assures some of the best natural snow conditions in Southern New England. 40 years of constant refinement of the trail system and grooming equipment have resulted in great skiing, even when you'd least expect it. The emphasis in developing this exciting trail system has always been to blend exhilarating outdoor fun with a sensitivity towards the natural environment.  We rent all sizes of cross country skis/boots/poles. 


Those seeking enjoyment in the winter woods at a slower pace can snowshoe on our trails as well. It is usually possible to snowshoe on a packed trail surface to the side of set ski tracks...please try to do this. Both adult and children's snowshoes are available for rent.

Winter Biking

We welcome winter bikers when the conditions are right. Our groomed twisty turny trails are a blast to ride when the snow firms up. There are days when you can ride but you can't ski, such as when the cover is thin or patchy. Powder days are reserved for skiers and snowshoers. We do not rent bikes. See below for more detailed info!

Winter Hiking

During low snow or icy conditions, hiking our trails is very popular with lodge guests. We rent Micro Spikes that work with most hiking boots to assist with traction when conditions warrant.

More on winter biking... fat bikes open up a whole new world of winter fun on snow. In order to orchestrate a peaceful co-existence with xc skiing and snowshoeing we have adopted this code of etiquette:

  1. Always check the trail conditions page of this website before coming to see if we are open for bikes on the day you plan to come.

  2.  Don't ride when the snow is too soft. This damages the groomed surface. If the snow becomes too soft while you are out on the trails, consider switching over to skis or snowshoes...you'll have more fun! 

  3. Bikes yield to all other users. Skiers don't have brakes!

  4. If we have set classical ski tracks, please do not ride in them. We will set them to one side to allow for bike & snowshoe use on the rest of the trail.

  5. We may occasionally open for night biking. If you have a group that is interested contact us. 

  6. We may organize special events for bikers on short notice when conditions are right.
