Vail Nordic Center


The Vail Golf Club pro shop is open daily until October 21. Due to some fall construction on the course, the driving range is now closed for the remainder of the season. The golf course is open with 16 holes in play. Carts and golf bikes are available. The Grill on the Gore restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

The Vail Nordic Center is closed for the summer, so come out and play some golf! The Nordic Center will reopen in November.

When snow blankets the Vail Golf Club, it becomes the full-service Vail Nordic Center. Glide along 17 kilometers of daily-groomed skate and classic track, 13 kilometers of fat bike trails or snowshoe on 10 kilometers of scenic trails. The exceptional staff offers lessons and clinics on technique and tuning for adults and children, and a wide variety of rental equipment is available. The Nordic Center also serves as one-stop shopping for backcountry needs including clothing, backpacks and snowshoes. The Grill on the Gore restaurant in the Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse offers a signature soup and chili lunch, as well as snacks and hot drinks to warm up and recharge. The restaurant will open for the winter when the Nordic ski track opens.

An evening race series as well as larger weekend events offer opportunities for competition, while daily lessons in classic and skate skiing with specialty clinics will offer the chance to learn and practice new skills.

The Nordic Center is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the winter season.
