The Birches Resort offer one of the best cross country ski trail networks in New England, with over 40 miles of marked, groomed trails ranging in difficulty from novice to high intermediate. To take advantage of the trails, the cost of passes are very reasonable: half day $11; full day $14. Rentals are available if you don't have your own skis. One of the great perks of the Birches Adventure is that you can choose your own adventure - snowshoe if that's an outdoor activity your passionate about or you can choose to cross country or downhill ski or all of the above!
