Nordic Is 100% Open!

It's been a banner start for us this season, and that includes our Nordic and backcountry terrain. We're approaching the second weekend of the season and everything is 100% open from the Nordic Center, which is (thankfully) a far cry from last season. Mother Nature has been tremendously accommodating thus far, so if you haven't gotten a chance to get out on some Nordic skis yet, I'd recommend doing it as soon as possible. If nothing else, the scenery right now is stunning.

After last week's Nor'Easter, the terrain looks great and is skiing even better. Things warmed up a little in the past week, so we kept groomers off the trails to preserve the base. Now that it's starting to firm up again, we should be able to lay down more classic tracks and skate grooming tonight. Until then, there's a thin breakable crust on top of the snow, but it's soft and powdery underneath once you break through. It's still early season, so there's some caution spots out there, but everything is skiing really well.

Tickets are available for less than $20 and if you need rentals, they can be had starting at $22. We also have Nordic 5 and 10 packs available, which make an excellent holiday gift or alternative to a season pass.
