The hilly state forests and state parks of Connecticut offer lots of places to get out on cross country skis and snowshoes. At least one downhill (Alpine) ski area offers groomed trails and equipment for Nordic skiing. Many Connecticut state parks and forests allow Nordic skiing and snowshoeing on their multi-purpose trails, but don’t count on finding supports like equipment rental, lodges and warming huts, or food. Bring your own gear.
