The Annual Progressive XC Ski Dinner is held on the Abenaki X-Country Ski Loop Trail. Participants will strap on skis, snowshoes or good winter boots and progress out on to the candle-lit 4 Kilometer XC Ski Loop starting at Abenaki Ski Area. Skiers and hikers will stop at warm bonfires along the 4K trail and be treated to a delicious multi-course Italian dinner served at various stations along the way. Appetizers and a small warming fire will greet participants at the first table, followed by a delicious Italian main course at the second station a kilometer or two down the trail, followed by the dessert station in Pikes Pasture, complete with s’mores, ice cream sandwiches, cookies, cocoa, coffee and more.
In between stations, participants ski or hike through the tranquil woods of the Abenaki Loop Trail, lit by hundreds of candle-lit luminaries.
Local restaurants, cafe's, and chefs contribute their expertise to provide a simply delicious meal, served to you under the stars. Participating restaurants in the past have included Garwood’s, Wolfeboro Inn, Nolan's, Harvest Market and Hunter’s Shop N' Save It is truly a magical event that is sponsored by Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation and Wolfeboro Lions Club all to raise funds for the Friends of Abenaki. All skiers/hikers must have a ticket that is available to purchase for $25 for adults, $15 for youth.
We recommend bringing the following items for your enjoyment of the experience: headlamp, warm layers, appropriate gear for being outside at night in February, a sense of adventure and an empty stomach! Limited to 125 participants, this event typically sells out prior to the day of the event. As of today, tickets are still available!!!
