As the colors of fall fade away and winter threatens to cover the North Idaho landscape once again (winter storm warning beginning tonight at 5pm), I find myself looking forward to winter a bit more this year. Usually, I dread the icy chill of winter. Sure, I enjoy the frosty charm for about a month, but after that I am ready for spring to come again. However, this year is a little different. This year I have cross-country skis.
This will be the third winter that Western Pleasure Guest Ranch has been offering groomed cross country skiing. Each year the number of groomed trail kilometers grows. This year we plan on having over 10k of groomed trails. I am extremely excited to enjoy these miles of scenic trails all winter, while gliding along on my new skis. It took me a couple years to decide to buy skis. I had been renting from the Tauber Angus Nordic Center just down the road from us. They also have several miles of trails to enjoy.
Prices are as follows:
- Adults – $10
- kids (ages 6-12) – $5
