Afterglow will NOT be open to the general public for day passes. Due to life changes, a skeleton staff and unpredictable covid regulations we will only be open for cabin guests and will be capping our season passholders.
Unlike many xc-skiing trails in the area, we do not allow walkers, snowshoes, dogs or fat bikes on our ski trails. Only skis are allowed on our ski trails. We have groomed our trails 100 times in one season (twice), so you can expect the very best grooming here.
Afterglow’s 251 acres of rolling wooded land, surrounded by the Nicolet National Forest, provide ideal terrain for our own Cross Country Ski trails in Northern Wisconsin.
Our picturesque wooded trails allow you to ski mile after mile in utter tranquility. The snowbelt we are in provides dependable snow usually from early December well into March frequently receiving “lake effect” snow from Lake Superior. We are located mid-way between Sylvania Wilderness and Anvil Trail Ski Trail in Eagle River, Wisconsin, making these other cross country ski trails only minutes away.
