With snow staying white and clear, McGrath is a winter wonderland. Our Iditarod nordic center offers all kinds of outdoor activities.
Nordic activities are for all ages and all physical conditions, from a relaxing walk to an intensive sport session. Thus we initiate curious beginners as well as we guide adventurous explorers. Roadhouse guests are free to borrow our equipments:
The nordic center maintains various XC equipments:
- Classic cross-country skis (for town and inter-village trails)
- Backcountry ski touring (all-terrain skis). Go alone or take a guided tour to the surrounding village of Takotna. You might need our Alaska wilderness safety briefing first.
- Skating skis (only for town)
Take a pair of nordic poles and hike along the coastal trail of the Kuskokwim river. Or grab a pair of snowshoes, cross the river and explore a little bit further!
More nordic activities coming…
We work hard on proposing more nordic activities on the Iditarod:
