    Grooming Report 

    November 26, 2016

    We haven't had enough snow to run our cat yet, but we expect several storms over the next week to change that. Check back for updated conditions and grooming reports throughout the 2016/2017 ski season. 

    The Nordic Center opens 7 days a week from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm on Saturday, December 10. Before that we will be open limited hours on weekends to accomodate our backcountry yurt and restaurant guests. For information on early season reservations call us at (719) 486-8114.
