Colorado Adventure Guides offers Nordic Skiing Tours out of our Summit County, CO Basecamp. There’s no better cardio workout and sight-seeing tour than Nordic skiing along a vast network of trails in Colorado’s White River National Forest.
Nordic skiing, also known as cross-country skiing, is a great way to get outside and experience the beauty of Colorado in its winter form. We offer half-day excursions that last around 3-5 hours with access points conveniently located near Dillon, Frisco, Breckenridge, and Keystone.
Our guides will choose a location that best suits your group and also as close as possible to where you are staying in the county to reduce driving time and increase adventure time. Depending on prior experience, beginners can quickly learn the nuances of Nordic skiing while more advanced skiers can enhance their expertise to take it to the next level.
