“Outstanding ski facility!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

First time there in January 2013. Excellent grooming, well equipped ski shop, friendly staff. The restaurant could do with some better healthy foods..... I like a burger once in a while but not when I am out working that hard!

“A fine facility finally gaining attention.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I've skied here since the CNC was new in the '80s. They've improved the grooming, snow making, and trail profiles. There are still some really challenging trails here, but they've developed a lot more with gentle gradients shorter loops. Perfect for skiers of all ages and abilities.

“Great mountain biking in the summer and x-country skiing in the winter”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My husband and I have been to the Nordic Centre a couple of times in the summer to mountain bike and twice this winter to cross country ski.

Mountain biking: excellent selection of trails for all abilities; I stuck to the green (easy) routes while my friends and family took advantage of the more difficult options. Great value as there is no charge in the summer to use the trails - which was a nice surprise.

Cross Country skiing - We took a private lesson with Trish from Trail sports located in the Nordic Centre. She was great and we were ready to explore on our own after just an hour. We returned the week after and tried a number of the easier trails. All were well maintained (although a little busy over the Christmas and New Years period). Great for all abilities and especially for beginners to learn in a safe environment.

“Xcountry skiing at new years!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

They need some snow but the Nordic Centre is a fantastic place for skiers and families to visit. We xcountry skied as a family, used the skating rink, toboggan hill and the nearby dog park.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Nordic Center was fantastic. We went cross country skiing..so many trails to choose from. We rented equipment there, and it was top of the line. The rentals were $20 each and it was $10 to use the trails. Trails are groomed and such beautiful scenery. If you are an outdoors type person, there is plenty to do there. They even had baby sleds to rent to take them along on the trails!!
