For the past nine years we are proud to offer year round recreational opportunities to locals and visitors alike. From December to April we maintain groomed skating and tracked classic Nordic trails, all situated on fantastic terrain in a beautiful setting. Our commitment to these trails has grown and we have invested resources into improving the trails themselves. On Darling Hill, said to be the “prettiest mile in Vermont” we maintain 15 kilometers of skating and classic trails that wind through field and forest. You can’t beat the vista from these trails, looking out at Willoughby Gap as you tour next to historic barns, quaint inns and majestic Victorian houses. This is also the home training grounds for Burke Mountain Academy, Lyndon Institute, and St. Johnsbury Academy Nordic Ski Teams.
Trail difficulty ranges from beginner to intermediate and are maintained primarily with a Tiddtech G2 Groomer, a Yellowstone roller/compactor and 2 Yamaha 4- stroke ProVK snowmobiles. We roll our system to ensure a quality base that will last through the season. This year we have several newly designed trails and bridges. We offer programs and events throughout the winter and also offer 40 kilometers of packed trails for snowshoeing & fat bikes.
A Year Round Membership is $75 for an individual. $150 for a family. Day passes are $7 for youth 8-15 and $15 for adults 16-69. 7 & under and over 70 are Free.
The Nordic Adventure Center is located at 2059 Darling Hill Road and the building is a yurt- a round tent originating in the middle east.
