XC Skiing by Lantern light

Let's go XC skiing by lantern light! Lanterns are lit on the 1-mile Lantern Loop from sunset until 9:00 PM on Tuesday nights (conditions permitting). The Lantern Loop is the only trail open for evening skiing and it is rated as one of the easier trails on the property. All trails are machine groomed.  We did this a couple of times last year and it was wonderful!

Adult trail pass is $11.00 (good from 10AM till 9PM).  Skis, poles, and boots rent for $14.00 or bring your own.

Great Brook does not allow use of headlamps or other forms of lighting because they negatively affect other skiers.

There is a heated lodge and snack bar on site.  Let's meet in the lodge after getting our trail passes.  I'll send an email with my cell phone number on Monday to those who sign up. 

If you are planning to rent skis please contact Great Brook directly for rental availability information.

Directions to Great Brook are available on their web site.
