People don't notice

whether it's winter

or summer

when they're happy.

No skis? Snow worries, Lake Metroparks has you covered!  It's easy (and affordable!) to beat the winter blues with cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals that cost less per hour than your favorite winter drink at Starbucks.  We love this a latte.


Cross-country skis are available for rent (ages 13 and older for $5/hour, $15/day, and ages 12 and younger for $3/hour, $9/day).


Snowshoes are available for  $3/hour, $12/day (ages 13 and older); $1.50/hour, $6/day (ages 12 and younger). 












The strings of white lights hanging in the woods at Chapin Forest are magical, and the fire pit seating area is the perfect place to get warm and enjoy an after-adventure snack. Our two-hour ski adventure through the forest made an ordinary weeknight feel like a little winter getaway.


We snowshoed at Penitentiary Glen a few years ago and loved that experience, too! There isn't anything like the stillness of the woods after a freshly fallen snow.
