RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – Off of Old Mount Rose Highway, Nevada Nordic, a local nonprofit, is making cross-country skiing accessible to all. Despite a slow winter season, the community involvement remains strong as groomed paths provide an outdoor fix for enthusiasts.

Nevada Nordic thrives on community donations rather than trail fees and welcomes everyone to experience the joy of cross-country skiing on their multi-use trails. The organization’s goal is to make the sport exciting and accessible, emphasizing the wide-open spaces that set it apart from downhill skiing.

The next frontier for Nevada Nordic includes plans for proper parking and the dream of a lodge. Grateful for community support, they encourage everyone to give cross-country skiing a try, touting its cardiovascular benefits and low impact.

As a volunteer-based nonprofit, Nevada Nordic invites individuals to contribute by teaching cross-country skiing or assisting in trail maintenance. To get involved, visit nevadanordic.org.
