Trails are open and the conditions are the best this season! Come on out to ski or snowshoe your favourite trails at Kawartha Nordic!
The annual Kawartha Nordic Skiathlon returns once again as a part of the XCSO Southern Ontario District (SOD) Paraffin race series.
We've had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2024 Kawartha Skiathlon due to a lack of snow. We will arrange refunds in short order.
This high-school, middle and elementary school race is open to teams and individuals, and will be hosted on the trails of Lakefield College School. Registration is available online through Zone4.
- Due to the forecast of rain and freezing rain for Friday January 26th, the Kawartha Nordic Full Moon Ski and Coffee House has been cancelled.
Watch for updates regarding a new date for the event around the February Full Moon.
Come and enjoy an evening of skiing under the Full Wolf Moon, and then relaxing in the WOODfine Lodge to the sound of local musicians, playing their favorite songs.
Guided Ski starts at 6:00pm and Music begins at 7:00pm in the Woodfine Lodge, entertainment playing until 10:00pm
Grab your skis, headlamp and a snack and join us for an evening at Kawartha Nordic under the glow of the Wolf Moon!

Ski to Benefit youself. Ski to Benefit others. Both are true at the KN 8-hour relay. This is a non-competitive 8-hour ski relay event happening on February 4th from 10am - 6pm, in support of the Peterborouhg YES Shelter for Youth and Families.
Families, businesses, teams, and skiers of all levels are encouraged to participate and raise funds for a worthy cause. Choose between a range of trail difficulties and legnths on Relay day. Expect a day of fun with activities alongside the relay, while giving back to our community.
