The Season is in Sight

Events, Programs, & Passes Coming Up

With September 1 right around the corner, we are at a tipping point at CB Nordic. Our online equipment sale has been going gangbusters and we are launching a retail sale, too. We’ve received approval to host the Summer GT (albeit with modifications), and we’re still looking for a few key volunteers. We’re launching season pass sales and opening registration for Junior Team Programs on September 1. We’re also currently enrolling donors in our K Club and businesses as Business & Lodging Partners. All programs, rentals, and services are changing so we can operate in a COVID-conscious manner, but we are looking forward to having trails, programs, and most events this winter.

Although we don’t know exactly what the winter has in store, and, like everything in our lives these days, our plans are subject to change, we’e excited to start signing you up and getting ready for winter with you

Did you miss it? Be sure you check out our first ever Annual Report to learn more about who we are, where we’ve been, and where we’re going.

Junior Team Registration

Opens September 1, Space is Limited

The only on snow after-school program returns this winter! We are making some changes to align with COVID-19 guidelines, but we’re excited we get to ski with your children again. Space is limited this year and programs will fill up, so be sure you’re prepared to register on September 1. We have programs for kids ages 3-18, including a new preschool program for ages 3-5.

September 5 & 6
We have received approval to host The North Face Grand Traverse Run & Bike Labor Day weekend. We are ecstatic we get to host these events this year! We have made quite a few modifications in light of COVID-19, not least of which is that the course is a loop that starts in CB and finishes in Mt. CB.

Registration is open until 8/23. Sign up soon to secure your spot.

We still need volunteers! 

Season Passes

On Sale September 1

CB Nordic proved last spring that even in the midst of a pandemic, we can continue to provide skiing for our community. We will be here for you this winter, with trails and rentals so you can get outside, all season long. Be sure you get a winter of skiing in by buying your Season Pass, and get it at the lowest prices of the year before 11/1.

Grin & Bear It Results

Thanks to TerraQuest and all you runners, The Grin & Bear It Trail Challenge was a success. 45 runners posted times to the Leaderboards, and we raised over $3,000 for our Junior Nordic Team. We even had a down-to-the-second tie for the 15K win (and new course record!) in a duel between Timmy Parr and Cam Smith.

Online Retail

Shop in the Safety of Your Home

We’ve opened an online shop for our used equipment and retail goods. Right now, we’re selling off last year’s items, but we’ll be posting new retail goods for this coming season as we get them. As for skis, right now we mostly just have kids’ stuff left, but take a look and see if you can find what you need.
