Beautifully managed tracks for skating and traditional cross country. Quiet location amongst trees. Easy to get around to all areas but a hard workout is there if you want it. Nice folks in the ski hire place.

Always enjoy a day of snow shoeing here which is free if you have your own gear, but they have inexpensive rentals as well. Bring a lunch to picnic and enjoy hiking up to the various lakes and views.
