Unlike cross-country ice hockey, cross-country skiing provides pulse-pounding exercise without fear of getting beaned with a puck in a deserted corn field. Sock yourself with stunning countryside scenery instead with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an all-day cross-country-skiing pass and rental at Maple Corner Farm, located in Granville (a $26 value for adults, $18 for youths).
Maple Corner Farm, a working family farm, offers powder-pounding pole positioners of all skill levels 20 kilometers of marked, groomed trails to traverse. Boot, ski, and pole rental is included, making for an equipped and efficient afternoon as ski bunnies drift through a picturesque, flaky paradise. Call ahead for an evaluation of snow conditions, and check here for additional directions and information.
