Ogden Nordic is a nonprofit organization with a mission to promote cross country skiing, snow-biking and snowshoeing in Northern Utah through world class grooming, dedicated volunteers, trails planning, construction and maintenance, all levels of instruction and friendly social gatherings.
We groom 15-20 miles of trails for Nordic Skiing, ~10 miles for snowshoeing and fat biking. We have rental equipment for cross country skiing (both classic and skate), and snowshoeing and operate a top level PSIA certified ski school.
Most of our operations are accomplished with volunteers. If you are interested in being part of an incredible volunteer team, contact us here.
LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS: We are located in Weber County's North Fork Park. The Nordic Center and main entrance is at the South Gate, which is at the end of 5950 N. in Liberty (4150 East 5950 North, Liberty, UT). View Google Map here

ATTENTION: Due to Covid-19, the following procedures will be in effect for the 2020-2021 season:
• Trails will be groomed!
Nordic Center Yurt will not be open.
Seasonal Equipment Rentals will be offered. See details here
WHAT TO EXPECT: Ogden Nordic has a small Nordic Center (yurt) located at the South Gate of North Fork Park. The Yurt will not be open this season, so here is no indoor escape from the weather. There are picnic tables in a covered/somewhat protected area about 1/4 mile up the trail from the Nordic Center/parking area in the Ball Field. There are two porta-potties in the parking area - there is no running water. Please purchase a Season Pass or Daily Trail Passes online here.
On weekends there will be volunteer "trail ambassadors" who can give you information about the trails and provide assistance with equipment etc as needed.
WHAT TO WEAR: Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are not like downhill skiing. Once you get moving you will get warmed up, so wear layers so you can adjust as you go along. Hat and mittens are essential. Medium weight wool socks are probably best.
