Nordic Center Experiences

Experience The Sundance Nordic Center

We are always surprised by how many of our guests staying in Sundance don’t actually ski. We wonder what draws them to the mountains, but are quickly reminded by how many things there are to do that don’t require the activity or skill level of downhill skiing. Whether you’re working through injuries, want something of a lower intensity, or just don’t like or know how to ski, we have many options that are equal--if not better, than the ski hill.

The Sundance Nordic Center is one of our favorite option as it is only one mile up the Alpine Loop Road from the Sundance Resort and ski hill. The Nordic Center offers both groomed snowshoeing and cross-country skiing terrain. They also offer snowshoe and boot rental as well as Nordic ski rental and will guide and coach you through trails whether you are a novice Nordic skier or have never put snowshoes on. But really, if you know how to walk in the snow, you can snowshoe. We recommend grabbing a trail map, packing some snacks or bottle of wine and setting out to explore for a few hours.

The Nordic Center also offers unique experiences like night owling and full-moon cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Using a headlamp or just the light of the full moon, you can explore the trails calling for owls and learning about winter wildlife on the mountain. There are specific dates and times for both night owling and full-moon cross-country skiing. These experiences often fill up, so advanced reservations are highly recommended.

The Sundance Nordic Center trails are open from 9-5 daily; for other info call: 801.223.4170

Cross-country skiing and snow sheoing can be a leisure stroll through the woods, set at a brisk pase or a full on sprint to see how your cardiocascular system takes it. We love our alternative winter activities in Sundance and you'll find out why when you give them a shot. 

Create your own Winter Adventure in Sundance

All of our Sundance cabin rentals are within a very short distance from great winter adventure. You don't have to ski and snowboard to enjoy winter outdoor recreation and adventure in Utah. We will be more than happy to share more information or take you out ourselves for a little mountain therapy that keeps us balanced during the busy winter months. We love our 4 distinct seasons here in Sundance. Come find a new season you haven't experienced yet and fall in love with new adventures. 

 

 

Don't waste the winter months inside waiting for spring and warmer temperatures to come. Where will your feet take you this winter?
