Description: 

The Catamount Nordic Center is part of a private development. The Nordic Center is different than any of the other areas in the valley in that it has an abundance of flat to easy rolling terrain and continual wide open views which include Lake Catamount, Mt. Baldy and Pleasant Valley. The owners of the Lake Catamount Development have extended a welcome to the community so please respect private property and the privilege to use this area.

The nordic trails are open daily. Fat Bikes are allowed, trail pass and trail etiquette required. Trail use requires either a Steamboat Nordic Valley Pass ($500), a Steamboat Nordic Valley GOLD pass($595), a Catamount Pass ($225) or purchase of a day pass for $20.

The restaurant at the Club House will be open for meals Wednesday through Sunday. Hours are from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Progressive clinics taught by Emily Lovett and Katie Lindquist. The clinics include 1 1/2 hours of Nordic instruction and a free trail pass.(call for specific dates and times) The cost for the sereis is TBA. 1/2 price rentals will be available for clinic participants.
