New Procedures for Rentals & Passes

Virtual Nordic Center

Skiing Your Way Through a Pandemic

Dear Season Passholders,

We had hoped to give you all this information Thursday night at our Virtual Annual Meeting & Potluck, but the best laid plans . . . you know . . . get burnt to a crisp in 2020. We will now hold our Virtual Annual Meeting on Monday, November 16, at 6 p.m. Same place!

Thanks for tuning in to this email to get some updates for Opening Day (Saturday, November 14). We’ve outlined here some key procedures to help keep you and our staff healthy and safe this winter. We know you’re excited to get skiing pronto, but please remember to check the Trail Report for grooming updates. Conditions change rapidly this time of year!

Thanks, too, for your patience. We’re piloting a whole bunch of new systems this year. As much as we’ve spent months prepping for Saturday, you are the very first people to really test it out en masse.

If you run into a long line at the Nordic Center pick-up window this weekend, please avoid gathering there. Go skiing, and then swing back by later this week to get your pass. Our Trail Hosts will be out in force in a week or so, but right now our goal is to get you skiing and keep you healthy.

Think snow!

Season Pass Pick-Up

For 2020, we mailed all passes purchased before Nov. 2 that had a pass photo sent in. Please check your mailbox.

If you did not submit a photo with your pass purchase, or you bought your pass after Nov. 2, then your pass will be available for pick up at pick-up window at the Nordic Center. Please note, patrons are not allowed inside the Nordic Center.

To expedite your pass pick-up, please email a photo to They will email you when your pass is ready. Please keep in mind, if they are very busy this may take more than 24 hours.

Day Pass Purchases

Day passes should be purchased online in advance. These purchases will be made through our new online rental equipment shop.

Then, you pick-up your physical pass at the pick-up window at the Nordic Center.

Adult Season Rentals

We offer 5 days of free rentals as a perk when you purchase a Season Pass*. New for 2020: No blackout dates. You MUST reserve your rental equipment online before you come to pick it up in person outside the Nordic Center. To make your rentals free, enter this TOP SECRET season passholder Coupon Code: email

*This doesn’t apply to 10-Punch passes.

PRO-TIP: If reserving more than one pair of skis using your free rentals, go through the check-out-process one pair at a time. The code only works for one package.

Child Season Rentals

Like with Adult Rentals, you MUST reserve your child’s rental equipment online before you come to pick it up in person outside the Nordic Center. However, child season passes come with unlimited rentals. Children get a free season pass if they live in the same household as an Adult Season Passholder.

Ski Tuning

We are a full-service nordic ski shop and can help you get your skis up-and-running for winter. Plus, from November 14 – December 14 we’re doing a Hot Box Special for $35 (instead of the usual $50). This year, reserve your ski service needs in advance for smooth drop-off and pick-up.

The NEW Virtual Annual Meeting time is Monday, November 16, at 6 p.m.
