What makes Arizona Nordic Village such a special venue?
The Arizona Nordic Village is an off-grid getaway. The Village is quiet and serene, surrounded by tall ponderosa pine and aspen trees. Our goal is to have as little impact as possible on the environment while also providing a comfortable and safe setting for campers and guests.
In the summer months of July through August you’ll find that the grass is green and the flowers are plenty. In the winter you’ll no doubt see a lot of snow. The monsoons bring quick summer rains, and the sun brings warmth and smiles to all. Whether a butterfly in the summer or a wild turkey in the winter, you’ll be surrounded by friendly wildlife everywhere you go.
Your guests will be comfortable in their cabin or yurt with the following amenities included in your fee:
water jug for dousing your fire
sleeping pads for up to 4
chairs (2 in the yurts, 4 in the cabins)
food storage container
lighter, hatchet, matches, paper towels, toilet paper, and more!
Arizona Nordic Village is proud to offer discounts to our partners and students!
Partner & Season Pass Holder Discount: 15%
School Discount: 10%
Our 70′ x 30′ pavilion tent is perfect for small or large events and has accommodated up to 290. Included in the overnight package is the setup of up to twenty-five 60″ round tables, fifteen 8′ rectangular tables, and ten 6′ rectangular tables. Linens not provided.
Our 30′ large yurt with wooden flooring, used in the winter as our ski rental shop, is the perfect dance floor for any type of event. The yurt comes standard with walls on for all events (as seen in picture), however you may request to have the windows and sections of the wall to be rolled up for a day with good weather.
The lodge is open 24/7 for use of indoor restrooms and showers.
The Ponderosa Room
The Ponderosa Room is conveniently located upstairs in the lodge. It can be used during your party or event, as well as lodging for 2-4 people overnight.
Communal AZNV Fire Ring
The Arizona Nordic Village staff offers to tend a large bonfire until 10:00 pm for your guests to enjoy the warmth and maybe even some dessert s’mores!
Included in the overnight package is lodging for up to 36 people in our rustic cabins and yurts. We have four cabins and three yurts located in the front country, about 100 feet away from the lodge.
Each cabin is equipped with one bunk bed with twin sleeping pads, and one double bed with sleeping pad provided. Four people sleep comfortably in the cabins. Each yurt is equipped with two sleeping pads that rest on the floor of the yurt, four people sleep cozy in these yurts, two is comfortable. In all units you’ll find a wood burning stove in which to keep warm in the colder summer, spring and winter months.
Due to our efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible, we must limit our use of electricity. For late night events, power will be cut-off at 10:00 pm, though power in the lodge will be available after 10:00 pm. You may bring your own generator to run lights and sound past 10:00 pm. Our power source can accommodate most sound systems, but further information and specs must be provided prior to event.
During the colder months in spring and summer, you may want to provide your guests with some firewood to keep their cabin or yurt warm during the night. We offer crates of wood for $10 each. One crate of wood will usually keep one unit warm for one night.
Wedding & Events Frequently Asked Questions
How early can you book your event?
Arizona Nordic Village will book your date up to 24 months in advance.
What is the deposit to hold a date?
Dates are reserved with a $500 non-refundable deposit. The total balance is due 90 days prior to the date of event.
What about weather?
The beauty of an outdoor event can also bring the complications of weather. Our 2100 square foot pavilion tent mitigates most weather conditions. We’ll only step in with the presence of major or dangerous weather events such as lightning. Deposits are not refundable for weather related cancellations or postponements. We suggest event insurance which is available from a variety of providers.
What about fire danger?
The Arizona Nordic Village (formerly Flagstaff Nordic Center) operates under special use permit of the United States Forest Service (USFS). We strictly adhere to all USFS fire restrictions and will often implement further fire restrictions that could include restrictions on decorating, smoking, campfire and ceremonial flame. The USFS dictates how we operate in the event of forest closure. USFS has the final say on all events being held in the Coconino National Forest.
Are there any restrictions on catering?
There are few restrictions on catering at the Nordic Village. This flexibility is a major benefit of holding your event at the Nordic Village. From family cook-out to full service catering, you make all the decisions regarding the food and drink at your event.
Are there any restrictions on alcohol?
Treat us like a campground – BYOB (bring your own beverages). No selling of alcohol unless you have a liquor license.
Do we have to clean up after our event?
Yes. You are responsible for cleaning up any catering, decorations and personal items. The Nordic Village will have plenty of trash cans and liners around the venue area that staff will tend to. Don’t worry about tear down of tables, chairs, etc. our staff is there to take care of all of those things for you.
When can we begin setting up for our event?
We want your day at the Nordic Village to be stress free! We find that most events are able to set up and decorate within their venue rental period. However, if you need more flexibility or are doing a lot of decorating we offer an early access charge of $150 to allow you to get in and start setting up as early as 11:30 AM. We’ll make every attempt to accommodate your needs, however there may be events at the Nordic Village that prevent us from allowing early arrival or storage of personal items. Be sure and communicate your set up needs and vendor arrivals with the Nordic Village staff. We will work to make your event convenient and stress free for everyone.
When does our event have to end?
Your event should be over by the end of your venue rental time. Decorations and personal items should be removed and all vendors should also be finished with any break down and clean up. This is true even if an overnight stay is included with your venue rental. There may be other events beginning at the Arizona Nordic Village early the next morning that the staff will have to be ready for. Open communication about your clean up needs is the key to ensuring a successful event. Additional charges may apply for late exit.
Who sets up tables and chairs?
We do! We will set up all tables and chairs in your ceremony and reception area. If chairs need to be moved from the ceremony to reception area your party is responsible for that. Typically wedding party guests are excited to grab their seat for the short walk back to the pavilion tent.
Can we have a band or DJ?
Absolutely! There are no nearby neighbors to the Nordic Village so dance, sing and have a great time!
