Our Nordic Center offers up to 15 kilometers of groomed and set track through beautiful wooded trails and meadows. We have both skating and traditional striding lanes however, there is no snowshoeing at the Nordic Center. 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 scheduled to be open Thursday - Monday from 9 AM to 4 PM, plus every day during Winter Break and Oregon Spring Break. The last day of the season is scheduled for Sunday, April 5. Contact the Nordic Center at 503.337.2222 ext. 1262 or email us. For conditions and operating schedule please visit our Conditions Page. View the Nordic Trail Map here, and "like" the Meadows Nordic Facebook page.

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.
