Cross Country skiing and snowshoeing here was terrific. Well marked, well groomed, accurately mapped, this place is perfect for kids, dogs friendly, groups friendly. Cabins available, a chalet with a lovely picture window over looking a fire pit and private non-motorized boats only lake. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Four women in their 60's have been coming here for about ten years and we LOVE it. We rent a three bedroom cottage right on the lake, cook our own delicious meals, ski out the door on perfectly groomed beautiful cross country ski trails (for striding or skating) and come back to make a blazing fire in the fireplace. There's...

We didn't stay at Afterglow, but we did go cross country skiing here, and we really had a lot of fun! When we arrived, we were given a map, and away we went. There was a nice variety of terrain, from an easy beginner trail to some really nice and fun expert loops. Trails ranged from fractions of a mile...

We had another great visit to Afterglow Resort in Phelps, WI. There is so much to do and you don't even need to leave the grounds. We enjoyed a day of tubing, ice-skating, broomball AND snow-shoeing! The resort offers snow shoes for all size feet and the kids even had a blast! The cross-county trails are top notch and groomed...
