Arizona Nordic Village

If you have ever dreamed of escaping it all for a nature-filled retreat, then you must visit Arizona's Nordic Village during a snowy winter. Fifteen miles north of Flagstaff, and just west of the San Francisco Peaks, this wooded wonderland is like walking through the wardrobe into Narnia. With over 35 miles of trails adventuring through the Ponderosa Pines with snow beneath your feet, you tune into something peaceful and perfect.

During the winter season you can cross-country ski on the well-groomed ski trails. The Nordic Village has over 40 km of ski trails groomed for both classic and skate style skiing. They also host over 15 km of well-marked and mapped snowshoe trails. They have trails for the novice visitor as well as the advanced skier, and they offer affordable lesson packages if you'd like to hone your skills We can personally say that these are fun trails that you will never forget. Feel at ease with your history of snow play – this place welcomes everyone and creates memorable experiences for all.

Staying in a Yurt

The Nordic Village also offers a variety of accommodations if you want to sleep where you ski. Front country cabins and yurts, to a single studio apartment, and back-country yurts are all available and warm in the winter season and offer you a beautiful winter vacation to ski and sleep conveniently, comfortably, and affordably. Some accommodations offer linens and have electricity, while others are more rustic and more like camping, just make sure to know what to bring! Each yurt and cabin provide mattresses and a wood-burning stove, so plan your sleeping gear and food prep accordingly.
