Our mission is to provide groomed and ungroomed winter trails for non-motorized use by people of all ages and abilities; and to provide winter recreation, education and community-building experiences.
Time to pay the 2021 – 2022 Dues!

Potluck and Bonfire
Sit around the bonfire and enjoy the beautiful winter day at the 4UR.
Please bring a dish to share! Some electricity is available for plugging in crock pots, but if possible, bring a pot that doesn’t have to be plugged in so we don’t trip a breaker 🙂
Bring your own reusable mug, plate, bowl and utensils.
We will have hot beverages for everyone available.
Call one of our fantastic outdoor gear retailers if you need to rent skis or snowshoes for the day (or rent for the whole weekend and explore some more of our local trails) Prices vary but seem to run about $15/day for a whole X-country ski package.
