The Cedar Mountain Nordic Ski Club is a registered Utah nonprofit corporation with 501(c)(3) federal tax exempt status. The purpose of the club is to encourage and advance the establishment and maintenance of cross country ski trails in the mountains near Cedar City, Utah. Some of the nationís best snow conditions occur year after year in these mountains to the east and north of Cedar City, including Dixie National Forest land, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and near the town of Brian Head, Utah. However, at present there are very few groomed Nordic trails in this region and Nordic skiers must break their own trails each time they go out. Our club hopes to improve this situation, through cooperation with city, state park, national park, and national forest personnel. Dixie Forest persons are now grooming the "Deer Valley" area near mile 22 on UT-14, with a little help from volunteer club members. This is a beautiful area of about 1300 acres in which 10-20 KM of trails are groomed about once per week. Future plans include a Nordic Center there with warming hut, sanitary facilities, ski rentals, etc. Also, Cedar Breaks National Monument maintains a 1 mile groomed trail and several miles of ungroomed trails. Information about the various Nordic sites in our area are shown below.
Any adult actively interested in Nordic skiing
