"Thanks for the warm hospitality, great food and well-groomed trails."
-Dave & Joan, Marshfield, WI
At Palmquist Farm, we keep about 10-20 miles of ski trials groomed across our 800-acre farm. These trails tend to follow farm roads, wind through maple groves or cedar woods or trek across farm fields.
Our ski trails are very quiet with low traffic, so you can ski at your own pace. They range from beginner to intermediate level in difficulty. We like to think The Farm is perfect place to learn cross-country skiing for the first time, teach your child, or return to the sport you used to love.
Well-behaved dogs are also welcome on the trails.
Cross Country Skiing History at The Farm
Cross-country skiing has been a part of The Farm's history, so our trails are ones that have been skied for generations. Palmquist Farm Ski History
Our cross-country ski trails can be groomed for skate skiing and classical skiing by our state-of-the-art Pisten Bully groomer. We also pull a groomer behind our snowmobile to maintain more narrow trails or to groom when there is less snow.
Cross Country Ski Rental at The Farm
We offer ski rental for adults, young adults, and children. We also rent Finnish pulks, small lightweight sleds that adults can harness around their waists to pull small children on the ski trails. See our rates page for current rental rates.
