The Camel's Hump Nordic Ski Center maintains a network of trails that are well-drained, contoured and graded in a manner that allows skiers to balance speed with control on the downhill, while gliding through the remarkable diversity of the surrounding woodlands and meadows on more gentle terrain. Another 10 kilometers are backcountry trails that climb to the high mountain areas above the farm and adjacent to Camel's Hump.
An all volunteer Board of Directors was formed to keep this sprawling network maintained and groomed day after day for hundred of skiers each winter. This happens because of the visionary leadership of Dave Brautigam, who is the Ray Kinsella (in “Field of Dreams”) of these Mountains. It also happens because there is a deep commitment by many in our community to insure that Nordic recreation, in these mountains, is available to others. Many, with chain saws and shovels in hand, join David’s army to keep the trails open, drained and groomed.
Windekind has always been a part of this adventure, cheerleading, providing access to our land and contributing in other ways. In the winter we join our friends, guests and neighbors to ski nearly every day and invite guest, at no charge, to do the same.
