Welcome to Temiskaming Nordic
Temiskaming Nordic is The Place To Ski and has earned a reputation for delivering one of the finest cross-country skiing experiences within Ontario. There are many reasons to ski at Temiskaming Nordic: awesome trails through beautiful forested landscape, early and late season skiing, great people, a welcoming chalet, youth programs, racing and social events.
We offer 20 km of well-marked, groomed and track-set skate and classic ski trails. The three beautiful trails offer varying levels of difficulty and length, making them enjoyable for beginner, intermediate and advanced level skiers. The combination of rolling esker terrain, unique trail system design and first-rate grooming makes the Temiskaming Nordic skiing experience one to remember and one to be repeated!
Temiskaming Nordic has grown over the last 25 years into an accomplished cross-country ski facility featuring a large heated log chalet with indoor washrooms, kitchen, waxing area and change rooms. Club membership is now near 385 individuals and families. We offer full season memberships as well as day-passes and ski rentals at very affordable, family-friendly rates.
We are centrally located in Ontario and easily accessible in often less than a few hours of driving from major centres.

Sprint Relays & Loppet
A weekend of fun for the whole family: March 25-26, 2023
Kilometre Challenge 2023
Temiskaming Nordic will be participating in Cross Country Ontario’s km-counting challenge again in 2023. Last season, TNSC finished the season in fourth place out of 25 participating ski clubs in Ontario, with a total of 16,586 km skied by more than 100 participants. Can we equal that achievement in 2023?
This season we will not be posting a hardcopy poster at the chalet to track kilometres skied. Instead, km challenge participants are asked to input their kilometres directly into the Cross Country spreadsheet here.
New Year’s Day Potluck Brunch (Members Only)
This will be a members only potluck. If you plan on attending, please bring your favourite dish that you would like to share. Coffee, tea and juice will be provided.
TNSC Chalet, Sunday January 1, 2023 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Farm Credit Canada Grant
The Executive wishes to acknowledge the grant of $10,000 from Farm Credit Canada’s (FCC) Agrispirit Fund. This money allowed us to install electric heaters in the chalet and the garage. As well, a portion of the funds went to help us fund our solar panels. Both of these projects help us reduce our carbon footprint and reduce our electrical bill.
100 Women Who Care Donation
The Temiskaming Nordic Ski Club wishes to thank the 100 Women Who Care for their generous donation of $12,000. This money went to the drilling of a new well for the club. The old shallow well was running out of water when we had large events, the new well has great flow and will allow us to hold major events in the future.
Temiskaming Foundation Donation
The Executive gratefully acknowledges the donation of $3,000 from the Temiskaming Foundtion For Kids’ Sake Fund. The money went towards the replacement of rental skis for children.
2022-23 Season – Early Bird Registration Opens October 1!

Saturday, May 6: If you like chopping wood, here’s your chance!
End of Season Meeting & Dinner
Sunday May 7, 6:00 pm: All TNSC members are invited to the Sunday night dinner. Pot luck, but chili will also be served. The idea is to have a celebration of volunteers since several long-time board members are stepping down and deserve a hearty thanks (as well as all other volunteers who helped out this season)!
