We are pleased to announce a few exciting changes to our Nordic Operations for the 2017-18 Season.
1.CLASSIC ONLY- We have added 5 kilometers to our Wilderness Trail making it a looped classic only adventure trail. With fun section names including Wanderlust, PB&J, Sunset Ridge and the soon to be famous Buck Snort!!
2. SHORTCUT – We have opened a Service trail that could serve as a shortcut between the Red and the Green Trail to help our groomer/ski patrollers easily navigate trails without having to ride the whole system.
3. IN MEMORY OF -There will be a newer waxing bench added to our main lodge, the bench was donated from Michael Seaman’s Trust, this was his personal bench, that he prepped many ski’s on! We are honored to have this in memory of Mike and we hope you remember his athletic spirit as you prep your skis! We will also have envelopes for Mike’s Scholarship fund available in the lodge for all those who wish to donate!
4. GROOMER LOVE- We are adding an additional Bear Cat Groomer Special to our grooming fleet!!
5. GOING THE DISTANCE- You will notice on our redesigned maps, point to point distances between colors!! Look for a new Trail Head (Coming Soon) signboard as well!

Student passes are $95.00? What about report card discount?

Student Passes will be replacing the Good Grades Discount. This is a Steal of a Deal, save $45 on an individual pass... Ski 4 times and your pass is paid for!! (versus regular lift ticket prices). Ski Season is HERE, these make great christmas gifts!!

Just to be clear passes are 95.00 for students, in place of good grade discounts?
