The Grand Lake Nordic Center closed for the season on March 22nd. The warm spring days have eaten up the snow and the trails. Thanks for making this winter season the best ever! We appreciate all our season pass holders and everyone who came from near and far to visit us. We had so many wonderful events and activities, from Full Moon Skis, first-time skiers taking lessons, the First Annual Foxy Freestyle Race, and evening catering events to family tubing adventures, dog days, guided snowshoe hikes, and fundraiser events. Thank to everyone for supporting us, and we hope to see you all next winter!
The first annual Foxy Freestyle Nordic Race took off with flying colors! This race was a fundraiser for the National Sports Center for the Disabled, Competitive Nordic Program. Over 75 people of all ages and from all over Colorado participated in either the Kids 2K, Adaptive/Intermediate 5K, or 15K. The race results are up! Click here to open the file in a new window >>

A winter day outdoors is not complete without a bit of tubing or sledding! At the Grand Lake Nordic Center we have a FREE tubing hill available for guests – whether you are out to ski or snowshoe also or not!
We provide ten tubes to be shared, or you are welcome to bring your own tubes or sleds (as long as the sled does not have a sharp metal edge). We do not have a tow rope available, but do maintain a packed trail to the top of the hill. It is fun for kids and adults of all ages! Donations for the use of the hill are appreciated.
