Went recently.... the man who rented us bikes (they don't rent cross country skis, they state this on their website, on their phone message, and when we arrived and only two places in flagstaff do, and their size selection is just okay). So, we rented snowbikes, which was a crazy workout, but fun. I'd love to see them offer bikes... More

The operator we spoke to wasn't the friendliest or most helpful (kind of a sarcastic --- at some parts) but despite that, it was still a wonderful experience! The center was easy for us to reserve, check in, and check out. The staff provided materials for us that I'd expected we'd have to fetch and the outhouse surprisingly smelled amazingly!... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights as part of a nine day trip through Arizona (and part of Utah). It's one hour away from the Grand Canyon, just 16 miles from Flagstaff, and close to the meteor crater and Wupatki Monument. After spending more money on accommodation in other areas, it was great to have our yurt... More

We stayed at the Nordic center for 3 days and absolutely loved it! Yurts are very accommodating, clean and a great place to stay while hiking the wonderful trails.

When there's snow it's great for skiing. I've biked in the summer before as well and it is peaceful. Great staff.

I am a little reluctant to write this review because my husband and I hike up there on weekends and we basically have the place to ourselves. We hike the cross country ski trails. They are well marked but Denise in the office also has maps. They rent yerts which families seem to enjoy. Also lots of weddings. They set... More

My girlfriends and I camp quite a bit with our families but we were looking for a camping experience without having to lug our tents along. This fit the bill perfectly. The cabins are just that, a small log cabin with a full bed and a bunk bed, a table with chairs and a wood stove. The setting is lovely... More

We booked a stay in the yurts months in advance, and were surprised that there was no snow. Oh well, great hiking, and we rented snow bikes from the nordic center--WHAT A HOOT! Now shopping for a fat-bike. We rode the bikes to the top yurt, then climbed the hill behind the yurt: it gives a beautiful 360ish view. A... More

We stayed a couple of nights here when we went to the Grand Canyon. We planned on staying in a Yurt, but felt it was too small for 2 people and 2 dogs. It would have been fine as a place to sleep, but was a little too cozy to spend much time. The guy in the visitor center was... More

There are only a few yurts and cabins there, so its never crowded. Great hiking and mountain biking trails. Only 10mins from Flagstaff and 1 hour to Grand Canyon. Very clean, quiet and a unique experience. Most the workers there were very nice and welcoming, but a few of them had the granola elitist attitude we could have done without...
