Downhill skiing, snowboarding, sliding, hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing and Disc Golf can all be enjoyed at Hard'ack. The ski hill and towrope will be operated and supervised during specific hours of operation as conditions allow.

-2022 Season -
The Greg Brown Lodge - Now open to the public and available to rent for private events. 

Snack Bar - Snack bar will be operational when the season kicks off (tbd) and will operate with limited offerings Monday-Thursday & expanded on Friday-Sunday when hill is open for full day.
Hard'ack Disc Golf - A 18 hole disc golf course was installed this fall.  Baskets 9 & 1 have been removed for the winter as they were on the ski hill, but baskets 2 through 18 remain available for play all winter!
Lighted Nordic Loop - Thanks to RiseVT grant funding, a lighted groomed Nordic track will be available for night skiing & training on the field area at the bottom of the sledding hill. This light is on a large pole overlooking the soccer field and can be turned on for use. It will shut off on its own when the timer expires (2 hour max). 
Sleds to Share -  Forget your sled?  Thanks to RiseVT grant funding, starting 1/16/21 we'll have some sleds on hand to lend out for same day use. Call the office or stop by the Greg Brown Lodge for more info.
Snowshoes to Share - Want to try snowshoeing?  We have snowshoes available for use. Call ahead to reserve your pair.
Wolf Pack - Join the Hard'ack Wolf Pack!  A membership that gives members a cool hat or gaiter, membership card and a free hot cocoa each time they visit the hill when snack bar is open.  There will be exclusive Wolf Pack events - races, hikes and more - free and just for wolf pack members!  What a great way to support Hard'ack! 


How does Hard'ack operate?  By donation and fund raising events. 
What does that mean?  While there is no set fee to use Hard'ack, we ask those who do to make a donation each time they visit at the office in the lodge, at the snack bar, via Venmo or make a donation below.
