Ski Woldumar Nature CenterIf the sight of snow on the ground has you hankering to get your skis on, you’re in luck. The Eaton Rapids area is home to a number of excellent cross-country ski and snowshoe opportunities at wonderful places like Woldumar Nature Center, Fitzgerald Park, and more.

The English Inn’s convenient location, just south of Lansing, MI in Eaton Rapids, puts us within easy distance of just about anything you could want to do. Shopping, dining, live entertainment, museums, hiking, boating, touring, and so much more.

What you may not have realized is that you can add skiing and snowshoeing to that list, as well. While the nearest ski resort, https://www.mtbrighton.com/Mt. Brighton, is an hour away, opportunities for cross-country skiing are much closer.

You say you left your skis or snowshoes at home? Not a problem! Many of the destinations below offer equipment rentals and there are a number of outfitters in the area that can help get you on your way. Just let us know what it is you’re wanting to do and we’ll help point you in the right direction.
