MISSION STATEMENT

North Highlands Nordic is dedicated to offering a welcoming winter wonderland experience in northern Cape Breton to cross country skiers of all ages and abilities and to those who choose to snowshoe.

After a  fabulous winter North Highlands Nordic is officially closed for the season. March 29, 2021

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

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.

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.

If you need to send us a message at any time, please email us at: nhn@xcski.ca rather than a Facebook message.

 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.

This fall NHN will again be able to offer charitable receipts through our partnership with Nordiq Canada. Please stay tuned for updates…
