Cross-Country Ski Shop Services

Maps and Trail Guidance

We provide trail guidance and maps so you can enjoy our extensive trail system to the fullest. We’ll let you know which trails are open, what’s been groomed, and what the overall ski conditions are for waxing.

Food and Beverages

Lunch and dinner is served every day at The Log House Restaurant, located nearby in our main Log House. Warm up with a delicious meal and satisfy your appetite after an exciting ski workout.

Ski and Boot Rental

We have an extensive inventory of skis and boots to outfit you with equipment that is right for you.

Today, cross country ski equipment comes in many sizes and shapes. Each class of cross country ski gear fills a particular skiing niche. Light weight racing skis for competition, light touring equipment for groomed and packed trails, touring width skis for off trail, and metal edged skis for backcountry and telemark skiing. The latest advances in ski equipment are new compact ski designs – skis are shorter, lighter, and easier to use. Many designs will fit in the trunk of the car!

Most of the equipment we sell is available to rent so you can “try before you buy.” We will deduct up to two days rental fees from the price of new gear you buy.  See rental rates


If you would like to pull a child along behind you as you ski, we have pulks available for rental for that purpose. $20/day


We stock a complete line of cross country ski clothing and accessories.
