Cross-country skiing doesn't get better than this and grab a cup of soup after! Awesome people, great teachers!

Great place to learn how to cross country ski! There are rentals here and also some warm clothes/gear for sale if you have a shortage of that. You can also get lessons here. Definitely a very thorough center
