Please consider the following two important questions, each day you wish to join us:

1. Have you, or any member of your party, failed The Ontario Ministry of Health COVID-19 Screening assessment?

2. Do you, or any members of your party, feel the precautions described below and in place at Kawartha Nordic are not offering adequate protection?
If you answer YES to either question, please refrain from visiting Kawartha Nordic and follow the guidance of your local health authority.

Trail Passes: on the same day you plan to visiit, please purchase your trail pass online before visiting Kawartha Nordic. If you wish to pay by cash, please use the self-serve kiosk at the trail-head (exact change only).

Rentals: please download, complete, and print the rental form and bring it with you to the rental shop at Kawartha Nordic. There will be no entry to the rental shop this year. Pay for your rentals through the window and return your rentals to the wax room.

As we make plans to reopen during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we will be updating this page with details on what to expect and how we plan to keep everyone safe.
