                        OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

Good morning:  As many of you know I have semi retired.  I will be running a ski shop this winter in Osceola.  Another couple has purchased much of the property and will be running the ski trails, snack bar etc.  For all pratical purposes, very little will change.  Biggest change is that I will ski more.  They will be grooming with heavier equipment (Bombardier snowcat) and provide an excellent skiing experience.  Enclosed is a quick intro from the couple.

 

Note: 

COVID safety procedure this year while at the Osceola Tug Hill Cross Country Ski Center.  The day lodge will be open the same as previous years, 7 days a week from 10AM until 5PM.   Masks will be worn at ALL times while inside.  While you are skiing you make the choice as to wear a mask or not.  Osceola does not have sidewalks or curbs.  We will bring all trail passes out to your car with a snowbank pickup if you feel more comfortable not coming into the lodge.   We will still have our normal snack bar available including coffee, tea, hot cocoa, pre-packaged snacks etc.  Since masks are required on at all times -  snacks will have to be consumed outside or in your vehicle.  Outdoor firepits and seating available for you to utilize if so desired.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but many of our skiers have been with us for 30 years or more and everyone’s safety is very important to us.  Bathrooms, microwaves etc. will be available inside as needed.  Porti-potti available outside.  Due to the inconvenience of restrictions, new people grooming and just not knowing what to heck is going to happen during the season, we will have reduced trail fees and memberships this year.  Our new adult trail fee is $15 vs. $20 last year.  Junior trail fees (6-15 years) will be $8.  Seniors (62 + up) $12.  Family memberships $220 vs. $290 last year.  Adult memberships $110.  Senior memberships $90.  Group discounts - 10 or more in a group get an additional 10% off the above reduced rates.  20 or more in a group get 20% off.

The red camp will be available for rent this year.  Changes are a minimum of two night and an open day after any rental.  Special price available on 6 nights worth of  rentals.  All forecast call for cross country to be a major success this year as it is an activity that you can enjoy doing while practicing social distancing.  Stay safe, be active and make it through until vaccines are in wide distribution.

The Osceola Tug Hill Cross Country Ski Center Inc is dedicated to the best cross country skiing possible.  With this in mind, we only offer cross country skiing (winter months).  No hiking, no tubing, no pets. I have 2 dogs and they are definately part of the family, but it is not safe for dogs or skiers if you are coming down a hill and there is a dog in the trail.   

 

Groomed ski trails for both classic and skate techniques.   84 inch Yellowstone track system groomer that get 2 passes on the entire trail system for a skate lane and set tracks.

 

Largest selection of nordic or cross country ski equipment in the northeast.  Hundreds of skis available to rent under our RENTAFLEXIBILY program where all rentals are credited toward purchase if you so desire.

OPEN HOURS SKI SEASON - 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

 

APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.

 

We are now grooming with Bombardier snow cat, Two skandic snowmobiles, Ginzu 84, mogal master and 8 foot roller.

 

One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow.  The way we groom allows us the abilty to groom - renovate - pack any amount of snow.  This lets our skiing stay firm to the ski for skate skiing.  Set track for classic and no rug burns for those inadvertant sudden stops (falls).  

 

I use a Yellowstone 84 inch Ginzu groomer. With 250 pounds of down pressure we have the ability to smooth out all snow regardless of the age.  The Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds.   www.yellowstonetrack.com
