Description & Services

Information The North Highlands Nordic Ski Club was founded in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic cross country skiers who shared a love of winter and of the splendid scenery in the Northeast Highlands Area of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. 
North Highlands Nordic Ski Club is a member of Cross Country Nova Scotia and a member of Cross Country Canada.  
From humble beginnings of skiing on ungroomed trails the club has developed a very high class facility and trail system in the village of Cape North. We operate out of a heated waxing/warm-up/ski rental room in the Cape North Community Centre. A trail network of 12 km of mechanically-groomed and tilled by a Pisten Bully grooming tractor offer panoramic views of some of Atlantic Canada‚Äôs best scenery. The club is operated on a volunteer basis. To make ends meet a small trail fee is charged, with season memberships encouraged. 
The club is proud to have hosted any number of major national and regional ski races including the 1987 Canada Winter Games, 1989 Canadian Junior Nationals, and the 1986, 1987, 1994 and 1998 Atlantic Championships and numerous Loppets and Provincial Championships.
Hours Ski room open from 10 am till 5 pm daily.
Accessibility Partially Wheelchair Accessible ; Club Room is fully accessible. Trails are accessible depending on disability
