Friendly people, beautiful trails, well maintained, this is the nicest place, and we come back every year, do three days, 1-3 hours each, before heading into town for a date with Texas Red's!

The enchanted forest was a wonderful place for summer mountain biking. We chose the easier trails...not too steep. The more advanced trails were rocky and steep. Would recommend the powderpuff trail for beginners.

When the snow is good here, you can't beat it. The folks who run the area and also the rental shop are very accomodating and the rental equipment, if you need it, is top notch.

Extensive and well-groomed trails. Great service and rental options! If you love to xc, this is a unique experience. Lots of uphill work in the mountains, but that makes the downhill runs all the merrier! There is nothing like xc at 10,000+ ft!

We loved our cross country ski lesson and instructor. Even though we are expert downhill skiing, it didn't translate well to cross country so the lesson first thing in the morning was a real help. Then we spent the rest of the morning and the...More

There's a lot of activities to do in this area. You can go for snowmobile, sledging, tubing. Enchanted ski area is also big as well, and they are not expensive as well.
