About GMNC

The Grand Mesa Nordic Council (GMNC) is a member-suported, nonprofit organization of people who love to participate in Nordic sports on the Grand Mesa in Western Colorado. GMNC is dedicated to promoting fun, safe, diversified skiing experiences on the Grand Mesa for skiers of all ages, abilities, and interests.

With funds largely donated from users, we groom 54 kilometers (32.4 miles) of ski trails on the Skyway, County Line, and Ward Trail Systems on the Grand Mesa providing access to one of the few Nordic ski areas in the United States without trail use fees. The Grand Mesa is the largest flat top mountain in the U.S. at an elevation of over 10,000 feet and has more than 200 lakes.

GMNC is governed by an appointed board of directors from the local communities in the Grand Mesa region and is funded by membership fees, donations, business sponsors, fundraising events, and grants. Monies are used for trail grooming operations; staff; equipment purchases and maintenance; trail maps and signs; maintenance of the Skyway warming hut; and outreach including youth and adult programs and races.
