Open skiing snowshoeing on the groomed trails all day!

Ski Lessons – Beginner to Intermediate
These are optional. Sign up when you arrive. Lessons begin at 10am.

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.

Ski Rentals
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.
