The secret is out on most of the ski resorts in Utah, but one ski area is still a bit of a sleeper. Compared to the other Ogden beasts in Powder Mountain and Snowbasin Resort, Nordic Valley has stood for most of its history as a small family ski area. That reputation is changing, with the mountain undergoing a major expansion last year. This expansion brought a brand new peak with a high-speed six-pack. This could also be the precipice of Nordic Valleys’ expansion plans, as much more terrain could be forthcoming. On Wednesday, Nordic Valley unveiled their new trail map, which shows off the new peak and trails that were cut over the offseason. You can see these maps above and below. Three new trails have been added to this map in the Nordic Express Terrain area after they were cut out this summer. These new runs include Righty Tighty (black diamond), Nimby (black diamond), and Itsa Start (intermediate). The Hiccup run has been extended. Two trails were recut after they were unskiable last year off of the Appollo lift: Black Bear and Buck Shot. 2020 has been downgraded from a black diamond to an intermediate trail. The map of the Nordic Express from last year is below and shows how much is changed in just one summer. I look forward to checking this growing ski resort out in the near future.
