Enchanted Forest Cross
Country Ski Area

Great early season snow! We got 15-20 inches on 11/11/18, and will assess whether or not to open for Thanksgiving weekend. Still a lot of thin areas and some downed trees, and warm temperatures forecasted. If you are dying to get out on the snow, at your own risk skiing is allowed, just watch for hazards like thin areas and snowmobile traffic.

Keep an eye out here, or on our Facebook page for all the latest details.


Open 7 days a week 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Enchanted Forest offers 33 km of 12 – 16 ft. wide groomed, signed, and patrolled trails for both classic and freestyle skiing. You'll also find 15 km devoted to snowshoes as well as 5km of trails to ski with your dog. Enjoy access to miles and miles of backcountry trails!


Summer yurt rentals are available now for reservations starting April 29. Hiking and mountain biking are always available on the Enchanted Forest trails, no fee required.
