In order to provide consistently good cross-country skiing conditions regardless of the abundance of natural snow, the Leo J. Martin Ski Track has assembled one of the largest cross-country ski snowmaking systems in New England. When combined with expert grooming, this snowmaking capability allows for extremely reliable cross-country skiing even in the leanest of snow seasons.
The snowmakers work around the clock as temperatures permit throughout December and January to create a loop about 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) in length
. The resilient nature of this artificial snow allows that base to last well into March.
