Dex­ter's Cross Coun­try

Dex­ter's Cross-coun­try ski and snow­shoe trails wind their way through forests and fields with min­i­mal road cross­ings, and are de­signed to have that old-time nat­u­ral feel. The ex­pe­ri­ence is quite dif­fer­ent from ski­ing on a golf course, frozen pond or pub­lic park. The 1,350-foot el­e­va­tion and at­ten­tion to groom­ing en­hance the snow qual­ity. The trail net­work of­fers a va­ri­ety of ter­rain that al­lows first-timers, novices, in­ter­me­di­ates and ad­vanced skiers to all find some­thing to en­joy. Trails are rated 30% eas­ier, 55% in­ter­me­di­ate and 15% ad­vanced. The trails are groomed for Clas­si­cal par­al­lel track-ski­ing only (no skate ski­ing).

Ski Hearth Farm

Twenty-three kilo­me­tres of groomed trails on an his­toric farm with ex­tra­or­di­nary views of the Fran­co­nia Ridge and Can­non Moun­tain. There are plenty of open fields with wide vis­tas di­rectly ac­cessed from the base. Forested trails were de­signed by Mor­ton Trails and of­fer in­ter­me­di­ate and ad­vanced ter­rain. Farm­stand prod­ucts and farm-pro­duced food are avail­able at the wood­stove-heated warm­ing room.
