Nordic Center

We are extremely excited that The Nordic Center has moved from the South Golf course to the Highlands Complex and the General Golf course. The opening of the Nordic Center is weather dependent so please continue to check the website for updates on our official opening date. We will have a new ice-skating rink located on the upper parking lot of the General Golf course. Sledding will take place on the 10th hole of the General golf course. We will also have our Grill open for food and beverage and to keep everyone warm a daily bonfire will be located near the skating rink.

Chestnut Mountain

Chestnut Mountain's slopes are meant for all levels of skiers and boarders to enjoy. Their 475-foot vertical drop meanders 3,500 feet through 19 runs, ranging from novice to black diamond with two quad chairs, four triple chairs, two conveyor lifts and one surface lift to get you back up to the top. Transworld has chosen Chestnut Mountain as their top-rated Midwest snowboard park for three years running. Their terrain park, the Farmside, is the largest of its kind in the Midwest – containing more than 25 rails and an array of features and is served by its own triple chair lift and surface lift. 

Chestnut Mountain is 15 short miles away—and we will provide complimentary transportation! What better way to enjoy the slopes and return to Eagle Ridge Resort for a relaxing spa, great restaurants and spacious rooms or your villa or home at Eagle Ridge resort.
