Hours & Rates

Open from 9:00am-4:30pm Tuesday-Sunday for as long as conditions allow.

See “Trail Conditions” above for details or contact us before driving up.

During the winter season, we offer around 30 km of trails for cross-country skiing, most of which is machine-groomed. Scroll down to see a map of our trail system. Select snowshoe trails are available when conditions permit. The lake is closed Monday-Thursday, and on the weekends the lake may be open for skiing and ice skating when conditions permit. During spring and fall, we offer the same trails for hiking and exploring.

Limited snacks are available for purchase in the Ski Shop. We do not take reservations for trail passes. We don't offer tubing, sledding, or downhill skiing. Leashed dogs are allowed on snowshoe trails only, and require a $15 fee.

Each skier must sign a waiver every time they ski. Season Passholders only need to sign a single season-long waiver. Children under 18 must have a waiver signed by their legal guardian (this includes individuals, school groups, scout groups, etc.)

Skis to Schools

Through our signature Skis to Schools program, we bring ski equipment and instructors directly to schools and lead a 45-minute lesson with the students. These lessons are a great opportunity for children to learn, grow, have fun, and try something new. At the end of the lesson, each student receives a free children's ski day pass for when they visit us with their families. The all-inclusive cost of the program is $350. Please note that our ability to run the program relies on workable snow conditions at your school as well as our staffing capacity. Please contact us if you are interested in the Skis to Schools program.
