No snowshoes, skis or fat bikes? No worries. The Nordic Center’s rental program is well-stocked to provide you with all the equipments you need. Even lessons on “all things Nordic” will be provided if you so wish.
If you want to know how to do tour style skiing, lessons can be provided too. All you need are cozy boots and poles and you’re all ready to go. Do you feel want to go faster and learn classic style skiing? The Track style is an aerobic version of skiing tour style akin to jogging, albeit on skis. A new style is Skate Style where XC skis provide you with a different type of propulsion.
The Tennessee Pass Nordic Center overlooks the stunning Sawatch Mountains. After a hectic day on the trails, feel free to savor soups, sandwiches, wine or beer at the spacious Center’s sunny deck.
