Kick and Glide Into Winter: Our nordic trails have snow

The ski trails are ready for you.

Posted By on Thu, Dec 1, 2011 at 9:11 PM

It looks like it's going to be awhile before the next storm cycle pushes through Central Oregon. While we wait for more snow to fall in the mountains, know that there's plenty of nordic skiing opportunities just outside of town, begging for your tracks.

The Bend Endurance Academy crew during a recent training session—charging uphill at Virginia Meissner Sno-Park.


Throw some money at  Meissner Nordic (formerly known as Tumalo Langlauf ski club) as they're the ones who keep the 40k-trail network well groomed throughout the winter. Speaking of, Saturday, Dec. 3 is opening day at the Sno-Park (currently the trails are open, but ungroomed—great for classic skiing and touring).

The grooming schedule (starting Saturday) for the winter is as follows: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings. The first grooming pass is normally complete by 9:30am with a second pass scheduled for noon.

The folks at Bend Endurance report that Swampy is skiing well with a good base and excellent crust-cruising opportunities.

Get out there and enjoy winter.
