Blueberry Patch

This gently rolling terrain allows for a variety of nordic skiing techniques. The trail is a low gradient climb through woodlands and then transitions to a low gradient descent with a nice banked turn to the open stadium area.   (.42K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Stadium Run

This open stadium area is a great way to lap, sprint, or practice your Nordic skills. The trail continues after the stadium to gain a ridge via a medium gradient climb and then transitions to a medium gradient descent back into the stadium. (.64K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

A-Climb

A significant climb will challenge the skier, but soon reward as well with two beautifully sculpted banked turns. Carrying speed from the bottom turn will allow a sublime transition back to Blueberry Patch's medium gradient climb.  (.45K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Oslo

This trail begins with the steepest climb of the trail system. This high gradient hill is short, steep, and sweet, and will definitely raise the heart rate. After the climb, the trail mellows out to a wide open flat stretch followed by a medium gradient climb to reach the highest elevation of the trail system. The wide turn and medium gradient descent allows the skier recovery time before dropping into the sculpted banked turns of A-Climb.  (.56K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Three-Pin

Meandering through soft and hardwoods with gently rolling terrain and a 'Norwegian sweet spot' climb of 8-9% grade, this trail has a wonderful flow.  Three-Pin will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.59K, Grooming)

Overlook Trail

This trail presents a variety of climbing and descent gradients, and a spectacular vista to view the Moxham Mountain & Valley and the High Peaks.  Overlook Trail will be opened with natural snow and during daytime operations.  (.46K, Grooming)

High Line

A fun and challenging terrain park-like trail with roller coaster dips, a gap jump, bicycle dips, a table top jump, and slalom turns.  This trail offers nordic skiers opportunity to work and develop balance, speed, and agility.  (.09K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Sprint Practice

The test loop and bottom of High Line allows skiers to dial in wax and check ski speed, as well as a choice to have some fun on nordic terrain park features.  (.23K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Rush Hour

This trail offers some of the easiest opened terrain for nordic skiers to work on a variety of techniques and interval training.  (.55K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Friendship Loop

This trail provides another B climb with 30' width and a lovely turning descent.  The open return to Rush Hour is ideal for working on V-2 alternate technique.  (.25K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Hudson Woods

For the beginner level skier, Trail J follows a flat stretch from the Joe Minder Lodge to the base of the Hudson lift.  After circling the base of the Hudson lift, skiers will turn right to head into a wooded section.  The trail makes a short gentle climb before turning left, then continues on a very modest climb before coming out under the Hudson Chair lift line. It then makes a gentle descent to merge into Trail H.  (.47K, Snowmaking, Grooming, Lights)

Snowshoe Hill

For the snowshoe enthusiast, this trail begins on the right of the Yurt, at the base of the Village Chair. This trail consists of a short loop following a natural ridge line, which offers excellent views of the entire Ski Bowl.  (.28K)
