Ski Trail Information

  • During the snow season, the 2.5 mile lighted loop is lit Monday-Saturday until 9pm.
  • The park closes at 5pm on Sundays.
  • Man-made snow is provided on 1.5 miles of trails each season.

There are 17 miles of loop trails with varying degrees of difficulty.  The Green and Purple Loops are the easiest terrain with approximately 2.0 miles, the Blue Loop is intermediate terrain with approximately 5.8 miles and the Black Loop is advanced terrain with approximately 7.0 miles.  When there is snow, there is a 2.5 mile lighted loop. An area ski club and other places offer skiing lessons. There is a blacktopped, Plantation Path, accessible trail for wheelchairs.  The Ice Age Trail also crosses through the park.

Once trails are groomed for skiing, hiking and snowshoeing is NOT permitted on these same trails.  The blacktopped - Plantation Path (accessible trail) is, and the Ice Age Trail is available in the park, as is the full West side of the park (between Highway C and Cushing Road) with its extensive trail system!  See the park map for more information.

Note, we make our own snow each winter! this provides the park with several loops of man-made snow (1.5 miles of snow) usually from mid or late December (once it gets cold enough) and for about the next 3 months once the base is put down!  Our goal is at least 85 days of good quality ski'able snow each season.
