Grand Lake Nordic Center

The Hidden Gem of the Rockies

The Grand Lake Nordic Center, the Hidden Gem of the Rockies, offers over 35 km of groomed and tracked trails for Classic and Skate Skiing. Trails range from beginner to advanced, and meander through lodgepole pine forest, wetlands, and along the Colorado River. Views of the mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapaho National Forest provide beautiful scenery and a feeling of peace and solitude.
