NOTE: This is an open ended listing for cross country skiing on the Columbia trail. *Disregard the date* - check back when there is a snow forecast to see if this is running!

Conditions: packed snow + several inches of light dry snow or crystalline snow

If you don't own skis, you can rent them at Pelican ski shop. Rentals are $20-30 and you can pick them up as early as Friday (they're open til 9 PM), and return them on Sunday. This counts as one "day" rental. You can also pick up and return on the same day.

There's also a Pelican in East Brunswick.

Of the three XC ski places currently listed, Thompson Park is #1 because the trail is groomed and there is a ski rental on site. Columbia trail as #2 because the trail is straightforward and it has a nice woods. Duke is #1 for snowshoeing, the route for XC skiing will be more difficult to figure out.

Both Duke and Columbia trail require renting skis elsewhere, and more snow conditions.
