Until Opening Day!

Season Pass Prices Go Up Nov. 1

It’s that time! All this snow has us excited to get skiing and snowshoeing. Fingers-crossed we’ll have snow on The Bench on November 13 so we can start skiing on opening day.

In the meantime, mark your calendar for our Annual Fall Potluck! Coming up on November 7, this event will be held outside, midday at the Nordic Center this year to try to gather together in the safest way possible.

Make sure you get your Season Passes by October 31 (or you might get SPOOKED by the price hike on Nov. 1!).

Additionally, Masters Community registration is now open and will likely fill up! Sign up soon to secure your spot.

Read on below for our other fun programs and events that will help you get more out of winter!

Annual Potluck - Nov. 7

An Outside Meal with Friends New & Old
  • Join us November 7 at noon at the Nordic Center for an Outside Annual Potluck & Meeting. (Not inside, like pictured here.) This party is a great time to get together with friends, learn about what’s new at CB Nordic, and get excited for the season. But instead of meeting indoors one evening, we’ll be gathering outside midday so that we can enjoy camaraderie with lots of fresh air. The plan is to set up tables and chairs out front of the Nordic Center.

    Bring your family and friends to get excited about the upcoming winter. Please bring a dish to share!

Ski Better, Ski Faster

Join the Masters Community.

Practice makes perfect, they say. But you know the revision: PERFECT practice makes perfect. How do you perfect your nordic skiing? With small-group coaching and individualized tips, just like those found in our Masters Community clinics. Our coaches will help make sure you’re getting the right kinds of practice in the right sequence to help you improve your skate or classic technique. With classes for every ability, and new offerings like “Intro to Racing” and “Ski Exploring” we truly are striving to offer a Masters clinic for everyone!

Thanksgiving Camp

The best learn-to-ski weekend in the country.

With a wide variety of clinics for all levels of skier, including a Devo program for U16 skiers and a Kids Camp for ages 5-12, we can get the whole family moving in the right direction. You can do one clinic or something different every day!
