The Ely Nordic Ski Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers. We focus our efforts towards the Hidden Valley Recreation Area (HVRA) located on the east end of Ely, Minnesota. As a club, we are responsible for the building & maintaining the HVRA trail system for year-round use as well as maintaining and managing the Hidden Valley Chalet/facilities. While open to the public, this year-round trail system is most heavily used by youth ski programs
Giants Ridge Cross Country Ski
Home to more than 60 kilometers of world-class nordic ski trails, Giants Ridge has long been a Minnesota cross country ski destination. In fact, the vast cross country trail system at Giants Ridge was originally designed and once served as a training center for U.S. Ski Team athletes. Today, the same expansive nordic trails at Giants Ridge traverse the Superior National Forest and offer a variety of cross country trail terrain for skiers of all ages and abilities, including green, blue and black trails.
