We rented snowshoes at Ace Hardware (cheaper than at the center) and packed a picnic. It was a good workout with great views. We stopped at the Sundance warming hut for lunch which was perfect.

From beginning to end we had an exceptional cross-country skiing experience here... From initial check-in, efficient equipment rental, outstanding instruction, and most importantly, wonderful trails.

The grooming crew did a great job with little snow to work with. It will be interesting to see how the new lodge presents food and amenities for day skiers. Nice trails with variety and many options for beginner to advanced skiers.
