Venue Overview

Gore Mountain’s Nordic Center offers a professionally groomed 5k trail network that features snowmaking and lighting to extend your on-snow time well into the evening hours.

Our stadium layout provides an ideal training and racing venue, and you can explore a scenic overlook, challenging hill climbs, and different loops to lap the best distance for your goals.  We recently received four FIS certifications, which means our courses meet the criteria for hosting a range of high-level racing events.  We are honored to host many types of competitions each snow season, which are exciting for both spectators and athletes.  Contact us to schedule team training and events on our certified courses.

Recreational users are always welcome. Customize your cross-country ski outing with varying inclines, natural wooded routes, and lighted tracks for evening fitness. If you’re just getting started, ask about equipment rentals and lessons – we’re happy to introduce you to this beautiful sport. Snowshoers welcome along the sides of the trails too.
