FAQs

Answers to all your cross country skiing relating questions.

What’s the difference between Cross Country Skiing and Downhill Skiing? select-arrow

As there are no lifts at Lake Mountain, skiing here takes a little more effort as you need to propel yourself UP and down the ski trails. Don’t worry though, the trails aren’t steep like regular downhill ski trails. There are over 37KM’s of trails winding their way through trees covering Lake Mountain. If you’re new to Cross Country Skiing, book in for a lesson at our Snow Sports Centre, they will get you skiing in no time.
