Viking Nordic Center's acclaimed trail system winds through beautiful Vermont countryside, with scenic vistas, past beaver ponds and along the West River. The trails offer something for everyone. Our 27 kilometers of ski trails are groomed for both skate skiing and classic skiing and offer terrain for all abilities. We also offer 4 kilometers of dedicated snowshoe trails. All of our trails are open to fat bikers based on snow conditions. Kids of all ages can search for cookie stations on the trails and claim a sweet reward in our cozy cafe when they've found them all. We also offer night skiing, group and individual lessons, and equipment rentals.

This was my first time visiting Viking, and I was very impressed. This is a quintessential Vermont cross country ski area. The trails were well groomed and marked with plenty of variety. Very friendly staff. Tasty homemade soup in the cafe. Look forward to returning.

Beautiful trials. Patient & knowledgeable staff who are dedicated and experienced. Down-home kind of place run by people who seem to care that you have a good time.

Viking does indeed have some of the most beautiful trails in Vermont. A nice little cafe and a first rate ski shop with friendly folks. But... they do a poor job in grooming their trails outside of the core trails near the touring center. On...More

Lovely trails through the woods and across hilly fields. Lots of ups and downs. A good map handed out. Would be an improvement to have maps posted on the trails. Good warming hut. Friendly service.

Extensive trails of varying difficulty across mostly rolling terrain. They do a good job keeping trails open during low-snow times. You can purchase nice homemade sandwiches and soups.

Hi, thanks for your interest in coming to Viking. No you do not need reservations for a group of 4 although it's always a good idea to call the center before coming to get the latest ski conditions, 802-824-3933.
