Strafford Nordic Center, located at 53 Rockbottom Rd in Strafford, VT, offers 30KM of groomed Nordic trails for skiers of all ages and abilities, a Biathlon Range, a full service rental department, ski lessons and a cozy ski lodge. Located just 10 minutes off I-89 and 2 1/2 hours from Boston and Hartford CT, we are the most convenient Nordic Ski Area in Vermont.
Our 30K trail system is stage one for a planned 50 kilometer trail system being created on two locally owned, well known farms. The base lodge and trail head are located at Rockbottom Farm, a working organic dairy farm and home of the Strafford Organic Creamery. Scenic ski trails are hosted on Rockbottom Farm's spacious fields, rolling hills and wooded expanses. Additional trails are hosted on Tamarack Hill Farm, long known for its high level equestrian training, gorgeous scenery and challenging terrain. While enjoying a day of skiing on these two majestic Vermont farms, take in the long range views of Vermont and New Hampshire from the ridge line on the Outer Loop trail.Â If cruising is more your style, try out the the rolling fields and winding woods trails. Whatever type of skier you are, we have the nearby trails you've been looking for.
Our rental ski program is based on the Salomon Pilot System. We worked with Salomon to come up with the most versatile ski package to meet the needs of our skiers. When you come ski with us, if you need rental skis, we've got the latest technology for both classic and skate skiers.
