Check-in is followed by outfitting in rental snowshoes or XC skis for a reduced rate of $9 per adult and $6 per child.

Learn the basics of cross country skiing and snowshoeing, including going up and down hills, and how to fall down and get back up! 11:30am: Ski out to Trappers Cabin for Hot Dogs, a bonfire and Hot Cocoa, all on the house. After lunch at the Cabin, skiers and snowshoers will have the choice of exploring more trails, or heading back to XC Ski HQ.
