      The Nordic Heritage Center (NHC) is a four-season outdoor recreation facility managed and operated by the Nordic Heritage Sport Club. The facility includes a world class cross country ski and biathlon venue with a stadium and lodge, a team wax building, and 20 kilometers of cross country ski trails and over 20 miles of mountain bike trails. The lodge is open to the public from 6 am to 10 pm and includes kitchen facilities, restrooms, shower rooms, and a sauna. The trails are free to the public.
      The mountain bike trails at the NHC include over 20 miles of hand made and machine made single track that crosses most of the Maine Winter Sports property and some adjacent properties. Rich Edwards of IMBA's Trail Solutions designed the majority of the trail system. The trails wind through different forest types and vary from smooth and fluid to narrow and technical. Moderate to expert line options such as log skinnies, exposed bedrock outcrops, and natural drops can be found on some of the trails. A skills/terrain park is available for practicing dirt jumps and other technical features such as skinnies, log obstructions, stairs, teeter totters, etc. Other features of interest include "The Enchanted Forest" (don't miss the tree gnomes), and Vacationland, an intermediate/expert loop that circles one of the ridges on the property.
