Our best run is Upper Main. It is just steep enough to provide a bit of confidence building for our novice skiers and riders, but also provides a great view of the valley.
Take the whole family ice skating on the lawn or swimming in our indoor pool. Spend some time making s’mores or enjoying a carriage ride. DownTime, our family game area, features mini bowling, air hockey, arcade games, and more.
In the warmer months, The Omni Homestead offers falconry, horseback riding, golf, paintball, hiking, carriage rides, zip lining, archery and other activities.
