Join us for a day of classic cross-country skiing…we break into groups based on skill levels…rentals available!
Cross country skiing is not what so many people have experienced! "Its soooo exhausting," is the most common complaint. Our question: "How fast were you pushing yourself?" Cross Country skiing is like everything else - just go at your own speed, and you'll discover the wonderful sport it is. C'mon out and give it a GO!
Waterville Valley has a superb network of groomed trails. One of the best in the New Hampshire! Click Here To View Trail Map.
We’ll have lunch indoors in a restaurant however still wear a day pack so you can de-layer as needed, carry water and have some snacks to replenish energy.
We ski a combination of easier and intermediate trails. There are loops in varying difficulties so in some cases we split up based on skill levels and meet-up at a pre-determined location. We can make it work for you and ensure you have a good time!
If you feel you need a beginner or advanced lesson there is that option as well…we can meet you afterward so we can all ski together.

After lunch, if conditions are good, we’ll explore the trails on the South End or return back to the North End.
