Classic Ski Lessons

Learn the basics of classic classic, Nordic skiing! "Classic" skiing is also known as traditional cross-country skiing. The technique is similar to that of walking or running, but with skis on. We offer different packages from a one-on-one session to family lessons. We cater to both beginners and those who are advanced.

Skate Ski Lessons

Skate skiing is a step up from classic skiing. The skis are different, and the technique is different. If you have ever ice-skated before, this style will likely come easier to you! Skate skiing is a more athletic style of Nordic skiing. It is super fun once you get the hang of it!

Season Passes

Love skiing? Get a season pass! Obtaining a season pass has its perks—along with the camaraderie that comes with being a part of this cross country ski community. Season pass holders receive 20% off all things Nordic Village, 2 complimentary single-use trail passes, and 1 free skate or classic ski lesson for personal use or use by a friend.

Customer Reviews

We had a blast coming out and playing with the snow.

We're from Texas, so our daughter has never seen snow before. Perfect for the first time.

Wonderful groomed trails for cross country skiing.

Easy access off Hwy 180. beautiful scenery while skiing in the forest.

Super Like!

An excellent way to have fun and burn calories! The staff were awesome in accommodating me and my party. There is something for everyone who just wants to enjoy natural outdoor activity at the Nordic Village.

It was great!

The four of us went snowshoeing today and it was great, will definitely be coming back.
