Devil's Thumb Nordic Center west of Winter Park has over 120 kilometers of groomed cross-country trails with a variety of terrain. This trip is listed as an Easy III Ski trip, but everyone is welcome. You may choose to follow the leader on a moderate level tour, or create your own Easy or Difficult trip and ski on your own. Bring a lunch to eat on the trail or in the day room, or buy a hot lunch in the coffee shop. There is lots of flexibility on this trip!

You will want waxable or fish-scale touring skis. Skins and wide telemark skis don't work very well on groomed trails. Rentals are available for $25 ($15 for seniors over 65).

The adult trail fee is $22. Seniors age 65 and older are just $15.
