Culinary stops rotate on an hourly basis and will include such past favorites as homemade donuts, hot soup, and a s’mores sweet ending.

Cost to participate in the Joy of Skiing is $6 in advance or a $7 on the day of the event, in addition to a trail pass. Kids ages 6 through 12 and seniors 65 and older cost $4, and kids 5 and under and adults 80 years and older are free. Cross country ski and snowshoe rentals are also available.
