Reviewed 16 October 2012

beautifully groomed and maintained trails run over frozen lakes, though open fields and hard and softwood stands. Skate or classic. Delish food, knowledgable and helpful staff, and the place keeps getting better and better every year. Now there are yoga and other exercise classes and world class ski events on a reg basis. Kid and I ski here all the time and are so lucky it's in our backyard - but i would come a long way to get here

We ski here weekly through out the winter and the grooming is simply amazing. Even with the low snow conditions that we had this season the groomers here kept the trails in fantastic shape. We're lucky to have such a great ski location so close by!

Two of my teengage children and I skate ski at Craftsbury frequently. Despite the lack of snow this winter in Vermont, Craftsbury made every attempt to provide an outstanding ski experience. Over the summer, they widened and smoothed the vast majority of their 100km of trails making them wonderful for skate and classic skiing and offering a superb experience even when there are only a few inches of snow. Since many of the trails are wide, there is room for everyone on the trails which is important as Olympian skiers train side-by-side with novices. To keep the trail surface impeccable, Craftsbury Nordic uses a state-of-the-art Pisten Bully to groom and they groom regularly! They and even make snow for their race course. You can find both beginner, intermediate, and challenging trails on the extensive and highly aesthetic trail system that winds through woods, high fields, over lakes, and into the charming town of Craftsbury if you choose to make the trip. They offer a medium sized warming hut which provides rentals, hot cocoa, tea and other drinks, ski paraphernalia, and cubbies for your stuff. A small cabin next door provides waxing benches and irons for ski waxing. The staff are very helpful and clearly knowledgeable about Nordic skiing. Thank you, Craftsbury!

Can't be beat for cross country skiing. They have added snow making this year, which came in handy during the snowless holidays.
