  • Nordic Training Facility

    The Bill Paine '51 Nordic Center matches Proctor’s outstanding alpine facilities with some of the regions finest Nordic trails. Trail width of 20 feet on downhills and flat sections of trail, and 30 feet required of climbs on the 2.5 km homologated loop, allows ample room for three side-by-side racers to ski an incline simultaneously. In addition to the added trail width and grading, the project installed snowmaking on a 1.4 km homologated sprint loop. With the enhanced trail width and snow-making, Proctor Ski Area’s crew is able to access the entire Nordic loop with its Prinoth BR 350 groomer. The trail system allows all levels of Nordic races to take place at the Proctor Ski Area, including internationally scored competitions.
