Snowflake Nordic Ski Center is a non-profit, year-round family recreation center. We offer a wide range of outdoor opportunities. A daily fee or season membership is your ticket to family fun.

Snowflake was owned and operated by George and Jane Hovland for over thirty years. In 1952, he was an Olympic Nordic Skier. George managed the operation on a shoestring budget with humor and good will.
