Nordic Valley Ski Resort has earned the distinct reputation as an affordable family-friendly downhill ski and snowboard area that is located in the small community of Nordic Valley in Weber County, Utah.

Nordic Valley Ski Resort was the vision of Arthur Christiansen, a home builder and developer from Salt Lake City who purchased the 900 acres Silver Bell Ranch, which included mountainside terrain. After several years of planning, Nordic Valley Ski Resort opened to the public in 1968 with a few trails and a rope tow. Throughout the years, Nordic Valley Ski Resort added new trails, new lifts, and more advanced terrain, and night skiing and snowboarding on 100% of the Mountain.

Nordic Valley Ski Resort has a few things that have stood the test of time, starting with the signature day lodge that was once a barn on the original ranch, and the fact that there are no crowds, great customer service, and incredible views and I mean incredible, of the surrounding Eden country-side. You will be glad you made an effort to spend some time here as Nordic Valley Ski Resort could be characterized as a place where everyone is welcome!
