Rim Nordic is open in the summer for mountain biking and other trail activities, but it's most well known for its namesake: Nordic skiing. (And snowshoeing). This is the only place to find groomed trails in Southern California for both classic and skate. The ten miles of alpine forested terrain features routes for beginner, advanced and expert skiers. There are also designated snowshoe trails.
What Makes It Great
Ski and snowshoe rentals are available at the shop onsite. Lessons including telemark are also available on the weekends. A snack bar featuring hot and cold menu items can be found in the Nordic center, and season trail passes as well as daily passes can be purchased. You will need a trail pass whether you are skiing or snowshoeing.
Who is Going to Love It
Nordic skiers of all levels will enjoy the groomed trails -- there's a good mix within the 10 miles of established paths. It's a nice family destination as well.
