During winter in Northern Arizona, temperatures plummet and snow settles on the high country. Rather than retreating indoors or down to the warmth of the valley, this is actually the perfect time to take to the trails. The Arizona Nordic Village is this region's destination for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and overnight stays. Cabins and yurts make even the depths of winter cozy and warm in the pine glades of Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff.

To get the most out of the Nordic Village's more than 25 miles of groomed trails, consider spending the night in a frontcountry cabin or yurt or even a backcountry yurt. All are well insulated and heated by wood stove. The frontcountry cabins and yurts are within 100 feet of the parking lot and lodge, so they are the cushier option. The backcountry yurts are more rustic and harder to get to. They are deeper in the forest, where motorized access is restricted. You must hike, ski, or bike to reach them. Five are available, and they are spread out in different locations. The closest is 1 mile from the parking lot, while the farthest is nearly 3 miles (but that one has the best view!).

Yurts and cabins should be reserved in advance. They are available most of the year. Even when there is no snow, the Nordic Village and the rest of the national forest on which it is leased are open to hiking, biking, and camping. You must transport all of your own gear to the backcountry yurts or pay an extra fee for a gear shuttle.

Each cabin and yurt provides a stove, firewood, bunks with mattresses, a table, chairs, and a lantern, but there is not much else in the way of supplies. You must bring whatever else you need to stay comfortable. Toilets, picnic tables, and grills are just outside each accomodation. Rustic charm in a beautiful setting is what attracts people from all over to stay at the Nordic Village, and miles of scenic trails to explore fill the days with adventure.
