When entering through the front gates of Glendorn in the winter, it's like driving into an idyllic snow globe of fun.
Cross Country Skiing
Our vast hiking trail system transforms into groomed cross-country skiing trails with terrain suited for all levels of skiers where you may ski on groomed trails or cut your own tracks through the woods. Along the way you'll find three rejuvenating warming cabins, with wood burning fireplaces, to take your skis off and take a moment to soak in the wilderness around you before continuing on your adventure.
This season we added all new cross country ski equipment including skis, poles and boots for our guest's complimentary use. For beginners, we offer a short introductory lesson from one of our activities staff on safety and technique.
Within the nearby Allegheny National Forest there are hundreds of miles of ski trails for the cross-country skier along with The Allegheny State Park with its Art Roscoe Ski Center where skiers of all levels can find groomed Nordic and Skate ski trails.
Guides available at $50 pp. per hour.
Glendorn and its trail system make a great place to explore.
