Great skiing at Nakkertok yesterday afternoon. The trails were freshly tilled which made for easy skiing on primaries. The addition of the warm-up loop and play park under the power line was a great place for Bunnyrabbits and Jackrabbits to practice high speed turns, herringbone on hardpacked snow and of course most important; play. Many more kids stuck around after lessons this week to ski the bumps, climb up and race down the hills. Great to have a place that grooms for skiers!

Eastern's conditions will be fine. Its hard packed and with the cold and flurries we're predicted to get all week, not to mention the snow making that's already taken place, the trails will be firm but good. Look forward to seeing the final prep and all the action next weekend.

About Skiing at Nakkertok..

General Info: Driving Directions | Trail Maps | Trail Conditions | Grooming Activity Report.


Nakkertok South is the main attraction offering groomed skating and classic skiing, chalets, races and children's programming. There are lit trails for night skiing. Club membership, or a day-use fee required for skiing.


Nakkertok North trails are quite demanding, and only occasionally groomed (Fridays). They offer a refreshing backcountry wilderness experience for those with good skiing skills. The trails at Nakkertok North are almost always quiet. The annual Nakkerloppet event in February is a great opportunity to discover these trails by making the North to South crossing.
