Winter Wonderland

For current conditions and expectations, click here. Trails will be groomed when there is enough snow to be packed. The Conservatory, along with the cacti & succulent collection, is closed to the public as we complete expansion. Soft Opening and Santa Day is Dec. 9. 

Public restrooms are available at the terrace building at the end of the parking lot nearest to the trails.

We’re excited to announce that this winter, we’ll be grooming 5 miles of classic ski trails at IPG. There will be three trails throughout the Garden, so you can explore and enjoy the beauty of winter. And if you want to stay the weekend, we have cabins available for rent. So grab your skis and enjoy the winter wonderland!

A very short (0.1 mile) beginner/young kids loop through the Oak Grove. An intermediate trail that is just over 1 mile and goes from the North Parking Lot to the Chapel and back. The advanced trail is about 3½ miles and starts on the same trail as the intermediate before crossing over the road at the OES Picnic site, across a short stint on Lake Stormon and the following the North Loop.
