29th March 2021

After a  fabulous winter North Highlands Nordic is officially closed for the season.

Thank you to our dedicated volunteers, members, guests and  community.

The current conditions show a 10 cm base, 15 mm of rain, warmer temperatures and gusty winds. NHN has decided to cease grooming operations for the remainder of this season as the longterm forecast indicates mild rainy weather and we await repairs to our groomer.

Contact NHN at nhn@xcski.ca 

 

 

 

On behalf of North Highlands Nordic we would like to thank Halifax Nordic for generously loaning us grooming equipment to see use through to the end of the season.

Thanks

Parking plus access to the trail system will now be next to our new Groomer Building in Cape North (on the left and not up at the Community Centre). Thank you.

We are open to general public for daily trail passes and daily equipment rentals in addition to seasonal pass holders. Please email nhn@xcski to arrange payment and book equipment sizes, preferably the day before.

We will be on-site daily. Trails open 9am to 5pm. Rentals due back by 4:30 pm.

If you need to send us a message at any time, please email us at: nhn@xcski.ca rather than a Facebook message. We will respond to the requests between 10am and 4:30 pm daily.

NORTH HIGHLANDS NORDIC CHALET BUILDING FUND

After almost thirty-five years we, the members of North Highlands Nordic believe that the time is right to have a stand alone facility dedicated to cross country skiing and snowshoeing in northern Cape Breton. A new Chalet will offer a wonderful winter destination in northern Cape Breton and a much needed “winter social hub” for the community. NHN already boasts over ten kilometres of scenic trails groomed expertly by a state of art Pisten Bulley grooming machine for classic and skate skiing and is open to the public every winter. Now we need a welcoming facility that we can all be proud of.

Presently we are applying for various government grants. Keeping this in mind, North Highlands Nordic will have the potential to triple your donation through our partnership with Nordiq Canada. We are soliciting your help to make this dream a reality. Many people will benefit from your generosity.
