Our Nordic Center offers up to 16.5 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.

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 Mt. Hood Meadows Nordic Center offers both group and private lessons every day it is open. We provide opportunities to try both Classic and Skate skiing. Private lessons can be arranged in advance by calling the Nordic Center at 503.337.2222 ext. 1262 or by emailing us. Our 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.
