Summary

Join us for a day of cross country skiing at the Waterville Valley Nordic Center. The trails are wide, beautiful and well groomed. One of the best in the New Hampshire! Waterville is nestled in a high valley within a ring of 4,000 footer mountains in the White Mountain National Forest!

We will do a variety of trails, some hilly and some flat. We ski a combination of easier and intermediate trails. We’ll spend the morning in the North End exploring the Osceola Vista Campground trails and either Livermore or Tripoli Road. After lunch in the Livermore parking lot, we’ll drive to the South End, trail conditions permitting, to explore those trails.    

If you need to rent XC Ski equipment please arrive a half hour early so by the time we arrive at the main lodge for 10:30 AM, you are ready to GO! If this is your first time cross-country skiing, we highly recommend you sign up for a beginner class and we’ll then pick you up at the main lodge once you are finished.

Don't forget to wear warm layers [NO COTTON OR BLUE JEANS], gloves, warm hat, rain/wind shell, water, lunch, snacks, pack and anything else you would bring for a cross-country ski adventure. We will be having lunch on the trail. 

The trail fee is $21. Contact us if you have any questions.
