Great Brook Farm Cross Country Center is a great, nearby groomed nordic center in metro Boston. Come join us for a day of kicking and gliding. Depending upon the group and conditions we will ski about 6-10 miles. Due to COVID, assume the lodge and snack bar will be closed, so bring your lunch and fluids to be out all day. As of listing, rentals are not available. This trip is appropriate for novice to expert nordic skiers, unfortunately due to COVID there are no lessons available and we can't accommodate first-timers.
