We want you to feel comfortable and confident in the Covid-19 safety measures we are taking during this global pandemic:
• Everyone who enters the store is required to wear a face mask. No exceptions.
• We are providing hand sanitizer stations throughout the store.
• We are limiting the number of customers in the store to 6 with social distancing expected from all customers.
• The store will be cleaned and sanitized throughout each day, and the door will be kept open, when possible, to ensure clean air exchange.
• All footwear and clothing that has been tried on will be sanitized and/or quarantined for a period of time.
CDC guidelines for public health and social distancing will likely require a little more grace and understanding on both sides of the counter, but we hope to maintain the same friendly atmosphere that people have always experienced when they visit Nordic Sports.
From the bottom of our heart, we really appreciate your loyalty and support during these unprecedented times.


With many unknowns we are going to error on the conservative side. We are going to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

Our store, which is small in size, has a limited capacity of 6 customers at a time in the building.  We require social distancing and mandatory properly fitted mask wearing. Sneeze guards, hand sanitizer stations and other safety precautions are in place for everyone’s safety.

Patience will be necessary when obtaining cross-country ski and snowshoe rentals. We will only be able to outfit and process TWO (2) RENTAL CUSTOMERS AT A TIME. At this time, during this highly infectious pandemic, we simply cannot accommodate large groups.

As we all struggle through these difficult times, we ask that you please remain respectful, courteous and polite to our employees who are working in stressful and difficult conditions.

January 6, 2021 - Corsair Ski Trail Report

With the 34º temperature, we have soggy, wet melting snow. Ski conditions are deteriorating, so we are not renting equipment at this time. We need a return to cooler temperatures and a fresh snowfall.

If you have not contributed to the operation of the the trails yet, 2021 Corsair Trail Grooming Passes are available at Nordic Sports, in East Tawas, for $10.00. Your financial contribution makes trail clearing and grooming happen.

Hike and canoe with us on PBS Great Getaways. (click on the logo to view some of the footage)
