Mile High Nordic needs your support

BECOME A MEMBER – Click the JOIN button.

In normal times Mile High Nordic would be hosting the Annual Ski Ball. But with Covid, we decided to forgo our signature fundraiser and membership drive. So we need your help.

As a nordic skier you have the opportunity to escape the winter doldrums and the pandemic with 35 miles of groomed ski trails at Mount Haggin, Moulton and Stodden Park. You can thank the club volunteers for maintaining and grooming those trails (over 1,600 hours). But we rely on memberships and donations to cover the real cost of over $7,000 per year to maintain our fleet of grooming equipment and to pay for a season of oil and gas.

Please consider being a Mile High Nordic member by joining online or printing and mailing a membership form.

Club volunteers maintain two top-level Nordic ski areas: Mount Haggin and Moulton Reservoir.

When snow conditions permit, the club also grooms the golf course at Stodden Park right in Butte.

If you enjoy these trails remember, we rely on membership dues, revenue from our annual Ski Ball, donations, grants, and a whole lot of volunteer labor.



The golf course was groomed January, 25. The trails are rolled and a classic track is set.

The club, in cooperation with Butte-Silver Bow Parks and Recreation, maintains a 4 kilometer loop at Stodden Park public golf course when snow conditions allow.  It is groomed for skate skiing and a  track is set for classic technique.
