SNOWSHOEING

Please join us in December to kick off the new season!  In the meantime, Think Snow!   Whether you’ve been doing it for years, or this is your first try, snowshoeing is a wonderful way to explore the woods and meadows and get that cardio going! Our team at the Activities Center will provide you with a trail map, and our Chef’s would be happy to pack you a lunch! When you get back, have some s’mores by the fire, or if you are an overnight guest – take a long soak in the hot tub – you’ve earned it!
