Winter Recreation

When snow arrives at Kahler Glen, the community gets to work, creating a winter playground. Local area volunteers and the Community Association partner with the Lake Wenatchee State Park, and Kahler Mountain Club to provide groomed ski trails, snowshoe trails, walking trails, sledding spaces, ice skating, and play areas.

Help us keep everything running safely and smoothly by observing the Etiquette Rules below.

Winter Etiquette


Kahler Glen Rules of the Road

Groomed Ski Trails

These are for Classic X-Country and Skate skiers only.

Please cross them gently if necessary.

No walking, sledding, snowshoeing, or playing on them, including the center portion at any time.


Sledding is for residents, guests, and renters only. It is permitted except in areas that are roped off, or where NO SLEDDING signs are posted. The ropes and signs protect sensitive golf course       features and personal property.


Local volunteers maintain a network of snowshoe trails on which to explore Kahler Glen or to access other area trails.  They are coincident with Shared-use Paths in some areas.

Shared-use Paths

Groomed paths, approximately 5 feet wide,       connect various points of interest within Kahler Glen.  They are suitable for walking, snowshoeing, skiing, and pulling kids on sleds. Dogs on leashes are welcome, but be prepared to clean up after them.  The paths connect the northern condo complexes to the Club House, the Wildflour Restaurant, ice skating, and sledding hills.

Ice Skating

When conditions permit and when the rink is attended, ice-skating is available. Skates are     available for use free at the rink or may be rented at the Pro Shop. This is a volunteer-run activity. Donations may be made at the rink.

Do not try to skate or walk the surface of other ponds. 

Snow cover acts as insulation and weakens the ice below making it unsafe.


Please pay attention to NO PARKING signs and parking guidance for rental units.

Both snow plowing and snow throwing machines need room to work to make our roads clear and safe to use.

The area near the ice-skating rink is a Wenatchee State Park-operated SnoPark during winter time.

A one-day Sno-Park permit, or a seasonal Sno-Park permit with a special groomed trail sticker is required to use that area. Permits may be purchased at the Pro Shop or online at Sno-Park Permits | Washington State Parks . Display the permit in the lower left corner of your windshield.
