Updated Info - While we’ve always been dog-friendly here at the Flagstaff Nordic Center, we wanted to make it clear to all of our customers that their hounds are welcome (almost) everywhere.  All of our multi-use snow sport trails, our snowplay area, and our yurts/cabins are open to canine companions.  We do ask that dogs stay out of the main lodge and ski yurt as much as possible, as we have many people, including plentiful children, in these small spaces, as well as an occasional lodge dog and loads of expensive equipment and gear.

About the only place that dogs are banned are on the trails designated as “skiing only”.  It’s really important to us to keep these trails in top shape, and we spend a lot of time, energy, and money grooming and maintaining these trails for our skiing customers.  With all of our dog trails and multi-use trails, however, you should be able to find plenty of open trail to exhaust both you and your dog.

Questions or comments?  Give us a ring or email, and we’ll get back to you ASAP.  Happy trails…
