Season Extension Possibility at North Highlands Nordic

April skiing at NHN – conditions and weather permitting

by North Highlands Nordic, February 27, 2021

North Highlands Nordic – After yesterday’s announcement by Dr. Strang, new travel restrictions have been put in place for those living in the HRM and two neighbouring municipalities. This comes into effect February 27th, at 8:00 a.m., until at least March 26th. North Highlands Nordic will remain open for skiing and snowshoeing for those living in unaffected regions of the province.

We urge everyone in the affected areas to follow public health guidelines and cease all non-essential travel.We ask that you do not come to North Highlands Nordic if you live within those restricted zones.

Our intention, providing the weather and conditions permit, is to extend the season beyond our scheduled closing date and into April.
