North Bay’s Nordic Ski Club features a series of concentric loops that combine for a total distance of 50 km. All of the trails, except the Green Trail, are groomed for both classic and skate techniques. The Green Trail is narrower and groomed for classic skiing only. The club also has a challenging 800 m sprint trail, a large stadium field, and lights for night skiing on approximately 2.5 km of trail.
Our Nordic Skiing Package includes your accommodations, a full hot chef-cooked plated breakfast, 3-course plated dinner per person in our very own Explore Your Senses dining room as well as your day rate ski pass.

The Yellow (1.3 km) and Gold (2.0 km) Trails: The short distances and relatively flat terrain of these trails make them ideally suited to both novice skiers as an introduction to skiing, as well as to more advanced and elite skiers as a warm up and cool down. The Yellow and part of the Gold are lit for night skiing.
The Purple trail (3.0 km): Our most popular trail, suited to all levels of skiing. It features gradual uphills, rolling terrain and a scenic return through a coniferous forest. The trail may be a bit challenging to the novice skier as it includes a few more rolling hills than the yellow and gold trails.
The Brown, Red, Blue, and Green Trails all feature significant climbs and downhill sections. The Red, Blue, and Green trails all share a common descent, the S-turn, about 1 km from the end. Cook's Mountain Return was designed to provide a gentler alternative to the steep-pitched S-turn. Its advanced rating indicates that it didn't turn out exactly as planned. In the Fall of 2006 an alternate route to the S-turn was cut. Those skiing the Red, Blue, and Green trails now have 3 options for the last downhill.
The Brown Trail (4.3 km): This trail provides a challenging ski through hardwood forests and along scenic ridges. The uphills are steep but the long downhills are worth the climb.
The Red Trail (5.0 km): This trail is our primary race trail. It is both physically and technically demanding and is best suited to skiers with strong uphill and downhill techniques.
The Blue Trail (8.0 km): Winding through hardwood bush overlooking High Lake, this trail can push your cardiovascular system to its maximum. For those not so inclined, there are many spots to stop and enjoy the view. After an initial 3 km climb, the skier is rewarded with several kilometres of rolling terrain and a long downhill run of almost 1 km.
The Blue X Trail (9 km): The Blue Trail Extension begins as a combination of the Blue & Green trails, then parallels the pipeline, meets the Pipeline Access Road (part of the Green Trail), and rejoins the Blue Trail. It provides a slightly longer climb and descent in addition to the regular Blue.
The Green Trail (18 km): This trail branches off from the Blue Trail and leads you into a more remote wilderness setting. There is a spectacular view of Trout Lake from "The Lookout". Most skiers carry a water or juice bottle, plus snacks or a lunch due to the length of the trail. This trail is narrower than the others and groomed only for classic technique.
