      Welcome to Highlands Nordic Sno-Park. You have found winter's hidden gem tucked into the Okanogan Highlands, with 36 plus kilometers of trails beautifully groomed for classic and skate skiing. Come meander through open meadows, cross creeks, climb steep wooded hills, and descend back to where you started. Catch your breath with views of Mt. Bonaparte, Baldy Mountain, and the Cascades shouldering into Canada. Build a warming fire in the ski shelter and enjoy a picnic lunch while you watch your children glide as easily as they walk. Ski in the sunlight of a short cold day when the frost crystals are shooting up tinsels of mirrored light. Ski in the moonlight of a long cold night when the snow shadows are longer than the trees are tall. At any time and in any weather, we invite you to come ski
