About the Grand Mesa Nordic Council


The Grand Mesa Nordic Council (GMNC) is a volunteer, nonprofit organization of people who love to ski on the Grand Mesa in Western Colorado, including classic (cross-country), skate, and biathlon. The Grand Mesa is the world’s largest flat top mountain at an elevation of over 10,000 feet and has more than 200 lakes.

We groom 54 kilometers (32.4 miles) of ski trails on the Skyway, County Line, and Ward Trail Systems on the Mesa and provide one of the few no-fee Nordic ski trail systems in the United States.

The GMNC is governed by an appointed board of directors from the local communities in the Grand Mesa region and is funded by membership fees, donations, business sponsors, fundraising events, and grants. Monies are used for trail grooming operations; staff; equipment purchases and maintenance; trail maps and signs; maintenance of the Skyway warming hut; and outreach programs including youth and adult programs and races.

The GMNC is dedicated to promoting fun, safe, diversified skiing experiences on the Grand Mesa for skiers of all ages, abilities, and interests.
