Within this ever changing COVID situation, North Highlands Nordic is doing what it can to ensure people can still enjoy the beautiful outdoors this winter.  After all, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Cape Breton Highlands is not only good for physical health, it’s good for the soul!  With this in mind, we aim to design COVID policies that respect the most current public health guidelines, allow our hard working volunteers and staff to effectively manage North Highlands Nordic operations, and most importantly, still provide an enjoyable experience for our ski & snowshoe community.
