Notchview is located in Windsor, MA and renowned for its Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. With over 25 miles of trails to explore, there is something for everyone. Almost half of the trails are groomed and track-set for classical cross-country skiing and 5 miles are groomed for skate skiing. A separate trail system is for “skijoring,” or skiing with dogs. You can also snowshoe alongside the ski trails or go off track and explore the backcountry. Hours of operation are 8:30AM to 4:30PM. Please check snow report for updated conditions
