We went hiking here in late January (2" of crust snow prohibited skiing). We did a nice 6mi loop along the outer trails. The ski trails were wide and I image would have made for excellent skiing had we had any snow. We got up and had a nice lunch overlooking the reservoir.

The trails are a lot of fun. It is a truly serious climb to the very top of the mountain, but the lower trails are very scenic with lots of ups and downs. This year the snow has been great. In some years the snow has been spotty at best. Rentals are available. The trails could probably be groomed more... More

Visited Northfield for a day of snowshoe. Great location. Plenty of dedicated miles of trails for snowshoers. Also, a tidy and warm building to change in and get a snack. Had the upper mountain trails to myself.

Great ski. Very demanding. A lot of long uphills but plenty of payback, fun downhills. Well-groomed. Will return.

Path to the summit was a lot of work with not that much of a view. But it was rewarding to know we made it. Only blue trail we tried was a bit narrow for my level with the turns required. Plenty of green trails to keep me busy and we explored less than half of the trails available. Well... More

We hit this place at the perfect time- It has snowed almost every day for the last few weeks so the conditions were perfect! Not knowing the place we decided to start on the Easiest trails , If you take Reservoir road it continues up up up then you can cut over to a few others that are Blue (more... More

My wife and I love this place. Unfortunately there isn't always enough snow. This is bad for us, but I'm sure it's worse for them. When it is open it is a lot of fun up there on the side of the mountain. We like the sidewinder trail coming down. It is a great local place for cross country skiing... More

I came here with a winter camp and the main rule is: always keep your clothing on and zipped...do not take it off until your allowed to. The camp emailed all the parents saying it'll be a cold day so make sure your kids bundle up. Well...my parents made me bundle up with snow bib pants, a down jacket liner... More
