The Park City Nordic Ski Club offers programs for cross country skiing and Nordic ski jumping for all ages and abilities.
Nordic Skiing is any skiing discipline that involves the use of a ski binding where only the toe is attached. This includes Cross-Country Skiing, Telemark Skiing and Ski Jumping. Cross-country skiing is one of the healthiest activities available, using every major muscle group, and it’s a fine activity for all ages. The town of Park City is a nordic playground surrounded by the picturesque mountains of the Wasatch Range and offers miles of trail systems. You can pick up a trail map at our front desk or explore our trail systems at Mountain Trails. Be sure to check out lessons and demos while you are in town from our partners at White Pine Touring.
White Pine Touring operates a 20K cross-country ski center in the heart of Park City for skate and classic skiing.
