Stay tuned folks. Halifax Nordic is planning for the upcoming season. In the meantime, think about telling friends about the value of XC skiing and programs we have to offer for adults and youths - especially during a time when some sports may be limited or cancelled.

We are planning carefully and are fortunate to be an outdoor sport with plenty of space for social distancing.

In 2020, lessons were offered at The Links at Brunello on Saturday mornings and one weekday evening. Snowmaking, lighting, and proximity to urban areas make this location convenient - especially for families.Join the XC community in 2021. Enjoy our sport in the company of nature.
