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.

Get Active in Temiskaming Virtual Run/Walk
You can run or walk any distance you would typically register for in our Get Active events: 1km, 2km, 5km, or 10km. You can make it flat, hilly, rolling, downhill, on the track, in the trails, or loops around your back yard – your choice!
The window for completing your chosen distance is June 14th-28th, 2020. The good thing about a virtual event is you can pick a nice day for participating, rather than being restricted to one specific event day and time!
Try to find a route where you can keep physical distance, with little interruptions, such as street lights, traffic etc. You could also set up a loop near your house, so you are coming back to your hydration and nutrition. Road, trail, track, backyard… be creative! We will be posting routes of our events on our Facebook Page for anyone interested in those for reference also.
How to Register
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Virtual Event” and include names and ages of all participants, with shirt size preference (mens/womens) and a primary contact email/phone for the person registering. We will reply with confirmation including instructions for payment, and arrangements for shirt pick up or delivery.
Cost is $15/participant aged 13+ and includes a Get Active In Temiskaming tech t-shirt, while supplies last. Ages 12 & under can register for free (no shirts included). All proceeds go to Get Active in Temiskaming which will help us offset operating expenses when we can return to offering our events locally again.
To keep payments contactless we will be accepting e-transfers only: email@example.com and receipts will be issued by email for confirmation.
Can I make a separate donation to this year’s beneficiaries?
Yes please! Our beneficiaries this year are: Nastawgan Trails, The Temiskaming Nordic Ski Club and the Temiskaming Northern Loons Swim Club. Any donation to your chosen beneficiaries would be greatly appreciated. All of these groups have had to cancel, postpone or restructure programming and all of that comes with a cost. Just let us know with your registration and we will allocate those funds to the specified group after the event.
Once complete, share your participation and/or times with us! You can message us through our Facebook Page or email. Timing and routes can be shared by apps such as Garmin/Strava or just a good old stop watch and brief description of the route is great. We will use the honour system so however you measure your distance and time is good for us. Once we have received your confirmation of completing the event, we’ll enter you into our various participation draws and prizes.
Are there prizes?
Participation and Getting Active is our focus but for those who want to ‘race’ other virtual participants, you can send us your time as well and we’ll provide stats for how you rank among the other racers. We will also be offering fun participation draws and prizes for things such as wearing Get Active gear, costumes, route creativity, youngest/oldest participant, selfie’s with scenery, etc. We will provide draw/prize details throughout the event.
You can also check out and RSVP on the Event on our Facebook Page.
Please post and share your pics on our Page/Instagram @getactiveintemisk using the hash tag #GAITvirtualevents so we can cheer you all on and motivate each other!!
Don’t forget, you have from June 14th until June 28th, 2020 to complete your chosen distance from a Get Active walk or run virtually. Thank you so much for all of your support in this trying time, you are each an inspiration to us and why we love organizing this series!

End of 2020 Season
After getting fresh snow on Thursday, and with the trails freshly groomed on Friday, the conditions were fantastic on Saturday. It was great to see so many people come out to get in a great day of skiing. At one point, we had 19 cars in the parking lot. Thank you to the groomers for making this day possible.
Regrettably, with milder weather in the forecast, we will no longer be grooming the trails. As previously advised, the Year End Banquet is cancelled and we will provide a further update at a later date regarding our Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is currently scheduled for May 13th.
Despite this health crises and issues with our groomer, we had another long season and the Executive would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere appreciation to all our volunteers for their hard work and dedication to our club.
Stay safe and be well.
