Meadows Nordic Center

The Meadows Nordic Center offers up to 15 kilometers of groomed and set track through beautiful wooded trails and meadows. We have both Skating and Classic striding lanes for cross country skiing. The Nordic Center is also the starting point for the Elk Meadows and Sahalie Falls snowshoe trails - snowshoeing is not allowed on the groomed Nordic ski trails with the exception of these two trails. The Nordic Center is located at the Hood River Meadows parking lot, 1 mile north of the main entrance to Meadows on Highway 35. There is no parking permitted at the entrance to Sahalie Falls Road. Please park at the Nordic Center and use the access trail to get to Sahalie Falls. 

We are open Thursdays through Mondays from 9 AM to 4 PM. If you park in the Twilight lot please do not walk on the Nordic trails. When returning to your vehicle please be mindful of the people using the trails and slow down.

The Nordic Center is a modular building at the east end of the Hood River Meadows parking lot (not the Hood River Meadows lodge – skier services building found near the bottom of the Hood River Express). The Nordic Center is where you purchase your track fee, as well as rent equipment or arrange for cross country lessons.

The Meadows Nordic Center offers both group and private lessons every day it is open. We provide opportunities to learn either Classic or Skate technique. Group lessons need to be booked online in advance here. Private lessons can be arranged in advance by calling the Nordic Center at 503.337.2222 ext. 1262 or by emailing us at Nordic@skihood.com. Our group lessons go out at 10 AM and 1 PM, and if rentals are needed we ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your lesson time. Private lessons can be scheduled for the time that best suits your needs.
