Grand Lake Nordic Center offers 35km of groomed scenic ski trails. One of our favorite trails "River Run" is parallel and crosses the Colorado River. We also offer snow shoe trails and a tubing hill. After skiing you may relax in front of a roaring fire and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate along with a scenic panorama view of Rocky Mountain National Park.

The Nordic Center is awesome. Just a short hop from downtown. Reasonably priced rental equipment with friendly staff. My wife had never skied before and loved it.

We arrived in Grand Lake the week after a huge blizzard, and in the days leading up to our arrival, there was a decent amount of snow fall. So by the time we wanted to go cross country skiing, there was a decent padding of snow on the floor, and there was a beautiful blanket of white over the landscape... More

GL Nordic Trails has a wonderful variety of trails and many are dog friendly. I love going there with my dogs to snowshoe as well. Highly recommend it for the beauty, charm and friendly staff!

The Nordic center at grand lake is one of the oat beautiful places to cross country ski or snow shoe. The trails are well groomed, the staff is friendly, and the views of the nearby mountains is outstanding. A huge plus is that I can take my Weimaraners here off leash while I ski! The tickets are very reasonable

My son's family of 5 and my husband and I were spending 3 days at Grand Lake. It snowed 5 inches during the night so we decided to check out the Nordic Center. It was a Thursday morning and we had the whole slope to ourselves. The ladies inside were extremely helpful. The slope was just right for 3 kids... More

The best part was the chili and Grand Lake beer in the lodge after! The kids had a blast and even though it was chilly outside, the sweat from skiing was exhilarating. The whole family fell into bed that night fully satisfied from an AWESOME day!

My husband and I spent the day here this week. It is just beautiful. I took a skate ski lesson with Aurel(sp?) while my husband skied and then we went snow-shoeing in the afternoon. The environment is welcoming and casual. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Although I clearly will never become a good skate skier I had the best time... More

I would highly recommend this place. We went a few times on our trip- for the free sledding and for cross country skiing. For sledding, sign in inside and the center provides tubes for your use. The hill is small but groomed and our kids loved it. There is a bucket for donations for the sledding. My kids, ages 4... More

We come every year & bring the kids. The tubing hill is simple, but so much fun...and its FREE! They provide the tubes and everyone just has a blast. A hidden gem, a few minutes from downtown Grand Lake.

Such a great place for Nordic skiing, snow-shoeing, or tubing. The surroundings are incredibly beautiful and the trails are great for beginner skiers with a few challenging hills. Ski rentals are available there for as well.
