Offering groomed and ungroomed trails for everyone to explore

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO SNOWSHOE

TRAIL PASSES

Visiting once? A day pass for the trails will suit you just fine. Purchase Day Passes at the Base Lodge when you come in, no reservations necessary.

Visiting for a few days, or more than once? Consider a season pass. Incredible deals if you purchase early in the season or if you are a first time season pass holder. Plus, when a parent/guardian purchases a season pass, ALL their kids, 17 and under, get a FREE pass too! Ready to get a season pass? Book online now!

RENTALS

SNOWSHOES: With one of the largest snowshoe rental fleets around, we can accommodate large groups. We also carry youth snowshoes for smaller adventurers. Pro tip: come in the morning for the best availability. We do not take reservations for snowshoe rentals.

SKIS: We rent both classic and skate skis from Salomon. We buy new equipment every season and offer it for sale at the end of the season so you are always using the best gear. We do not take reservations for ski rentals, just come into the base lodge and our experts will get you set up.

FATBIKES: Biking in the winter, why not? Big fat tires help cruise through the snow. Fatbiking is condition dependent, please always check the Snow Report or give us a call. You can make a Fatbike reservation: Book online now!
