The Nickel Plate Nordic Centre was developed by the Nickel Plate Cross Country Ski Club which is a volunteer non-profit society.  The existing trail system and cabin have been built by volunteers with the assistance of a large number of companies, individual donors and government agencies.  The Club wishes to thank each and every one of those who have made The Club the success it is today.

The club members invite you to enjoy this Nordic Centre with your friends and family.  We hope you will support us by joining our club or by making a donation. All monies received help pay for operating , maintaining and upgrading the Nordic Centre.

Please have fun and we thank you for your active support.

Happy Skiing
