Details

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.

 



Notes

*This is a Bobcats trip. The Bobcats' mission is to ensure a variety of challenging CMC trips, especially “B Difficult” and “C” hikes and Difficult Snowshoes, for our mostly age-50+ constituents. We may sponsor other activities of interest to our members, everything from bike rides to camping. Although we have members, we don’t have dues or elections, and our trips are non-exclusive. We welcome all CMC members to sign up for any Bobcats trip regardless of age or Bobcats membership.
