This was our first time cross country skiing, and while the terrain was a little tough for some of us, but everyone had a great time. The scenery is beautiful and the staff is friendly.

There's a lot of activities to do in this area. You can go for snowmobile, sledging, tubing. Enchanted ski area is also big as well, and they are not expensive as well.
