We will be opening the Nordic Center and tubing hill on Thanksgiving Day! We will have the dog loops, most of Winter's Way, and a few other select trails open tomorrow, and will open more trails as conditions warrant. Come on out and enjoy a ski before or after your Thanksgiving feasting, and/or over the weekend too. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Please note: Thanksgiving Day we will be open from 9am - 3pm. The rest of the weekend and through December our regular hours will be 9am to 4pm (until it starts staying lighter later).
SKI AND SNOWSHOE TRAILS WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS!
Enjoy the scenic views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho National Forest at the Grand Lake Nordic Center. We offer the beginner to advanced skier a variety of terrain on 35 km of classic and skate skiing trails.
The terrain and trails are also excellent for snowshoeing, and we have a dedicated dog loop and kid's tubing hill! The GLMRD Nordic Center is a full-service, outdoor winter destination featuring our ski and snowshoe rentals, lessons, a retail shop, and a winter soup kitchen at the Lodge.

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.
