Cross Country Skiing

Venture deep into the alder and aspen thickets on your snowshoes. No need to stay on the trail when you can make your own. You’ll hear the boom and crack of the frozen lakes and see animal tracks traced in the powder. Try one of the designated trails or make your own tracks near your favorite lakeshore resort.
