We were first-time cross country skiiers and this place was perfect. The woman renting us skis was helpful, the trails themselves were very nice. We took a one-hour lesson and that was the only disappointment - the instructor was a bit gruff and not very patient. I'd definitely go back, but I would not recommend the lessons.

I visit High Point Ski Center every year and always have a great time. This year the conditions were very good - powder and freshly groomed. The management are very nice and accommodating. There is a nice small lodge with a fireplace. You can rent equipment and have lunch; they sell some food as well. It's a great ski if... More

We had a great time!! We're all beginners to xc & want to learn more. We know that we were very lucky in our timing for this trip up north & feel very blessed to have found such a great place to learn & enjoy spending time outdoors in the winter. It was a great 'workout' & such nice staff.... More

Been here about a half dozen times. Staff is great - friendly and knowledgeable. Good quality rental equipment and reasonable prices. Have brought several friends to try xc for the first time. Beginner trails are really nice - easy and scenic. If you are an expert skier, maybe not enough challenge here, but for beginners and intermediates, it's a super... More

Been to High Point to snowshoe many times before and it WAS great. Monument Trail was only dedicated (8km) trail for shoeing. Plus you could always shoe the other x-country trails alongside so as not to mar the groomed tracks. Great views. Reasonable trail fees. Rentals too. Wish they opened a bit earlier. Present time is 9:00am. Now, why did... More

This is a great way to use this park in the winter. Having the Monument Trail for snowshoes is a great feature. That's what got us hooked and prompted us to buy our own snowshoes. The other trails are great as well - everything loops together so you can go for quite a long time in the woods. The only... More

My experience at the High Point Cross Country Ski Center was awesome. The trail system is extensive and the trails loop into one another, so you can spend hours in beautiful scenery without having to repeat the trails. All trails are well groomed, in very good condition and are geared towards various levels of proficiencies. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable... More

Cross country ski is something you don't hear a lot about in the US. This is much more physically demanding than skiing down the slopes. If you like outdoor challenge among great winter scenery, you are gonna love this one. My favorite was going-up-the-mountain trail. and then once you're done you have a nice cafeteria with a fireplace and hot... More
