Best Nordic Track — Best of Vail Valley 2019

1. Vail Nordic Center

2. Maloit Park

3. Beaver Creek Nordic Ski Area

While the crowds line up for first chair to thumping music, Nordic skiers quietly set out on groomed perfection at the Vail Nordic Center. The Vail Golf Course becomes a haven for skinny skis once the snow falls. With 17 kilometers of groomed classic and skate ski trail, and 13 kilometers of trail for snowshoers and fat bikers, hours can be spent exploring the terrain. Head out from the recently redone clubhouse, climb to East Vail, loop back, hit the soccer fields to end your lung-burner of a workout back at the clubhouse for a bowl of soup or tasty baked good.

The staff can assist with rentals, purchasing of new gear and a snow report for the day. The track is groomed daily and it shows. Corduroy has never felt so sweet.
