Colorado Mountain College’s Nordic Team is based at Timberline Campus in Leadville
in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Surrounded by Colorado’s highest peaks, the campus provides an excellent training ground for Nordic Ski racers. You won’t find a more spectacular setting to train and race.
Our Nordic facilities include 18 groomed kilometers on campus and 20 additional groomed kilometers on the adjacent Mineral Belt Trail. We have a minimum of six months of on-snow skiing. Both United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA)
and community-sponsored races are held on campus. Five additional Nordic centers and six major alpine ski areas are all within an hour’s drive from campus. You don’t have to go far to experience some of the best skiing in the Rocky Mountains!
Come join us! We offer you a quality education and competitive skiing in a spectacular mountain location. There is no other college program in America where you can walk to the edge of campus, snap on your skis and take a training run through pine forests beneath 14,000 foot peaks.
Live and learn at a college in the highest incorporated city in the United States. Located in the Two-Mile High City of Leadville, the campus and town atmosphere is casual, friendly and laid back and provides an environment for you to get to know other students, the faculty and staff.
Several of our programs complement an outdoor lifestyle. Earn a degree in Outdoor Recreation Leadership, Outdoor Education, Natural Resource Management, or Ski Area Operations. Our liberal arts and science transfer degrees expand your opportunities even more.
In the classroom you will have plenty of personal attention from faculty as you pursue a degree that will enhance your professional or academic goals. The Nordic Team requires hard work in the classroom as well as training. We believe both of these activities contribute to a better education and a more rounded student.
Beyond the ski trails and classroom you'll find lots of cross-training activities in the area such as hiking, rock and ice-climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and trail running.
