When snow blankets the Vail Golf Club, it becomes the full-service Vail Nordic Center. Glide along 17 kilometers of daily-groomed skate and classic track, 13 kilometers of fat bike trails or snowshoe on 10 kilometers of scenic trails. The...more
We went for a 2 hour ski on a Sunday when new snow was falling. The woman at the front desk was in a (?perpetually) bad mood. When I asked if she could tell me about the trails she snapped back, “What do you want...More
The trails are meticulously groomed. For snowshoeing, it's pretty flat and it's up to you how many loops you wish to do. This Nordic center comes alive in the winter over the golf course. The trail takes you by Memorial Park and a couple of...More
This was our first experience with cross country skiing and we were more than disappointed with the overall experience. We explained we were newbies and didn't get much help at all, other than our gear and then out the door. The area isn't that impressive...More

Visited for an afternoon of cross country skiing. $10.00! What? In Vail? I know, seems like it costs $10.00 to breathe the air here! The staff were very helpful and friendly. Miles and miles of groomed trails. It is in the valley and follows along...More
If you are a snow shoe expert or never put them, ask the Director, Nate for help and he will make you experience a great one. His knowledge is at a Mt. Everest level and teaches you how walk (in snow shoes) once again. Great...More
The Vail Nordic center can help you with everything to get started cross country skiing. Their pro shop is awesome and customer service is great. However they also rent so you don’t have to buy, you can try both styles of skinny skis first before...More
Great place to snow shoe and cross country ski. Friendly staff, excellent facility, good rental equipment. Trails clearly marked. Spent 3 days here. Hot chocolate upstairs afterwards. Not overly expensive. No senior discounts.
The longe is great! Heated seat while you change, very nice people there. Plenty of room, so you don’t seat on other people’s head while trying on boots.
Experience once you get outside is another matter:
1) Classic skiers feel like second class citizens. Tracks...More
Truly a great alternative to have in the heart of downhill ski country! They offer a very nice nordic shop, rentals, and trails. We snowshoed and fat-biked at this facility and enjoyed both activities immensely. Very well run with courteous staff.
Hi Judith, there is free parking at the Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse while you are using the Vail Nordic Center facilities. The parking is included with the purchase of a Nordic Center day/season pass.
