The Nordic Express Is Open!
The Nordic Express has officially opened and it is a new mountain!
We are proud to announce the opening of Utah’s newest chair lift, our high-speed, 6-person chair lift, named the Nordic Express. The community has waited over 50 years for this mountain to expand and the time has come! We highly recommend everyone to come experience this new terrain that has been unexplored and come discover a whole new Ski Resort.
Our new high speed 6-person chair lift has officially opened as of January 24, 2021. It was one of if not the most historical day in the history of Nordic Valley. Our mountain teams have done everything they can to open up the new terrain and have made it happen! Nordic Valley will run the Nordic Express from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day (weather and conditions permitting). This is all natural snow on the new terrain, please keep in mind that early season conditions exist! We plan to have a Grand Opening at a future date when there is a solid base and the new terrain can accomodate all of the traffic.
Approximately 50 of the 300 acres is available to ride with plans to open more. We have opened 10 trails that have never been open to the public before: beginner (green) trails Lolly Lolly Lolly, Hiccup, Wasatch, Viking Highway, and Bifrost; intermediate (blue) trail Valkyrie; advanced (black) trails 2020, TBS, Pine Creek; expert (double black) Show Me, and others later this season.
Earlier this summer, Nordic Valley began construction on the resort’s first high-speed detachable chairlift, a six-person lift. According to resort officials, the new lift construction project – together with Power Pass resort Arizona Snowbowl’s high-speed chairlift gondola combination lift – makes up one of the largest lift installation projects in North America for the 2020/2021 winter season.
Manufactured by Leitner Poma, it is 4,213 feet in length with a vertical of 1,400 feet. The high-speed lift is located on a brand new area – 300 skiable acres that’s been owned by Nordic Valley but never developed until now.
