More Winter Fun in the Snow
Ok, so you’ve already tackled the downhill ski slopes, cross county Nordic skiing trails, alpine tubing park, and terrain parks, but you’re still looking for more adventure. Try any of these family-friendly winter activities and snowsports.
If Nordic skiing isn’t your thing, you can still explore the beauty of Shanty Creek’s winter wonderland. Grab a pair of snowshoes and discover the 4,500 acres of Shanty Creek Resorts.
Visit the Nordic Center at Cedar River for snowshoe rentals and take off on the new multi-purpose Nordic trail at Cedar River. It will take you on a beautiful hike through our award-winning Cedar River Golf Course where many say it’s even more beautiful during the snow-covered months of winter.
Operated by Pets That Pull, Mike King’s beautiful Siberian Huskies add smiles and atmosphere to Schuss Village on Saturdays and holidays. Kids will grin with delight as Mike leads the dogs through the exhilarating, looped trail ride.
Rides are $15 each and run every 15 minutes. Contact the Schuss Mtn. Front Desk to make your reservations at 800.678.4111, x 3690. Note: Dogsled rides are limited to children under 100lbs.
Shanty Creek’s proximity to the vast Jordan Valley Trail System offers yet another snow sports option to your winter getaway. Our friends at Blue Sky Rentals will deliver one- and two-person sleds to you.
