Flagstaff Nordic Center

Tucked into the San Francisco Peaks in the Coconino National Forest about 15 miles from downtown Flagstaff, this Nordic oasis has most of the common attributes one would associate with a good cross country ski center anywhere else in the country. Flagstaff Nordic Center has a full 40km of non-redundant trails, more if you count portions of trails that you have to repeat to reach more distant loops. The trails wind through some of the largest Ponderosa pine stands in the state with the ever-present aspen, the other dominant species. Trails are named for terrain features found throughout the region, most of which are named after significant individuals and historic figures.

Winter Happenings:

Throughout the months of December through March (weather permitting) the Nordic Center keeps their trails groomed for cross country skiing. In addition to cross country ski rentals they offer snowshoe rentals and fat tire snow bike rentals. Their yurts and cabins, placed elegantly amongst the landscape, are also available for a unique style of camping. Rates at offgridgetaways.com

Summer Happenings:

During the romantic months of monsoon Arizona summer the Nordic Center offers rentals of their cabins and yurts dispersed amongst the property. They also rent out their property for special events and weddings.

  • We had never gone snowshoeing before so decided to try it. So glad we did ! You can rent snowshoes and poles at the Nordic Center as well as back country skis. The trails are very nice and plentiful. ...  more »

  • Flagstaff during winters is very beautiful. There are snow play areas everywhere. This is a great place to take a break while driving and enjoy the snow.
  • The yurts are very cool and a lot of fun.
  • When we just arrived We didn't see enough snow for across countries sky. But it's looks vary nice place.
  • We are not winter folks but we enjoyed staying here in the summer. The ski trails are perfect for easy, fun hiking in the summer. We had discounts (love Groupon) so it was not too costly. We were disappointed when we found out when we rented the larger yurt up the hill that we basically had a little red wagon to haul our stuff up a hill about a mile. I thought they would pull our stuff up with a little vehicle. But it was fun. And when I see another deal, we'll probably go back!
  • Despite a rough start to our journey, this is a great place to be again. This is a calm place and is a great way to escape the city buzz. $35 (approx) for skiing and renting out the gear is pretty economical in my opinion. A bright sunny day like the one we had is the right time to be there. We had great fun skiing there. A perfect kick start to my ' Happy Holidays! ' :)
