Rikert Nordic Center reviews
We enjoyed two days of perfect cross country skiing! It was easy to get passes and the trails were well groomed. Friendly staff and skiers and all very Covid cautious.

A hidden gem in the Green Mts. Easy to access. Lots of well-groomed trails and some outer ungroomed trails. Never very crowded even on weekends.

Great, friendly staff. Nice, beautiful trails in the woods. As long as it gets cold , they make snow on a 5-10km loops. Just check ahead if there any big races happening the day you plan to go as the main loop gets closed for non competitors.
Not for Beginners!!!! The 2km loop that is always "maintained" consists of steep uphills and steep downhills that I would not consider cross-country skiing and certainly not for beginners!! Conditions were also unbelievably icy and the only way to get up or down the hills was to skate ski. Really very dangerous. Stop telling folks that this is a loop safe for beginners!! We did not enjoy ourselves and wish they would have been honest about the conditions and skill level needed when we had called ahead of time. yours, Brave Bruised Beginner
