The Woodstock Ski Touring Center

The Woodstock Ski Touring Center, named one of North America's top five cross-country ski resorts by Snow Country Magazine. You will find 60 km of trails surrounding the picturesque village of Woodstock.

Just out from the ski center are 10 km of gentle "meadow" skiing and 20 km of challenging woodland trails on Mt. Peg.

There are also 30 km of trails located across The Green on Mt. Tom. Skiing on Mt. Tom puts you on century-old carriage roads in the midst of Vermont's first tree farm. Take a break and enjoy the spectacular views and enjoy a picnic "warm-up" at the center's rustic log cabin.

All 60 km are mapped and groomed for either traditional or skating technique. Services include professional instruction, guided tours, rental and repair shop, retail store, lounge, restaurant, trail-side log cabin and locker rooms with showers.
