Come visit your local nordic experts at Highlands Nordic, a family-owned and operated business in the hills of Duntroon. Located on the Niagara Escarpment, Highlands Nordic boasts spectacular views of Georgian Bay and bountiful nature. Here you can enjoy 30km of ski trails (for both classic and skate), 8km of snowshoe trails, and 8km of single track, and groomed fat biking! Highlands Nordic offers night skiing on select evenings and a 3km dog-friendly ski trail.

An exciting project we are working on this Fall is planting trees to frame out the dog-friendly ski trail, Teal’s Tango. Teal’s Tango opened in the 2019/2020 season and has since become one of our most popular ski trails. One thing we have always felt was missing on our network is some easy flat terrain for beginners. And, what started as an idea for just a dog-friendly ski trail has evolved into a trail that has been amazing for beginners as well. Families, beginners, people practicing, warming, or cooling down have been enjoying this trail.

Right now, Teal’s Tango is an open field, which can be a challenge for preserving snow and protecting both skiers and snow from the wind. Now with over 130 trees donated this project is well underway! Starting in October our team will be putting 400 trees into the ground and transplanting 500 three-year-old seedlings to begin the Teal’s Tango transformation. Would you like to help with this project? You can plant your legacy by donating a tree. Visit our website to make your contribution today!
