Each season brings its own charm to common activities.
Not for the feint of heart, with the steep hills and forested trails, skiing on the majority of the property is challenging. However, if a more sedate ski experience is required, our flat summer horse field is ideal.
With several trails to choose from, or not, snowshoeing is ideal for touring the various parts of the property, identifying and following tracks in the snow, and just enjoying the wilderness.
The abundance of snow in the region allows the building of a snow cave.
