    Tennessee Nordic is a groomed ski trail system that allows fat bikes. They advertise 25km of trail. This includes about 6km of snowshoe trail singletrack. The snowshoe trail is groomed by a snowmobile and then firmed up by snowshoers. We were there on a Thursday and saw only a handful of skiers. The nordic trails were freshly groomed (they groom every day) and very solid except in a few places where it had drifted out in the open and a few of the steeper hills were a bit softish. The blue and green trails have nice grades, only a couple short steeps that required walking. A little firmer snow and maybe lower tire pressure would have allowed a ride up. There is one short section of black trail. This has some very steep sections that could be fun descents but the climbing would be horrific. We had to do one short section of black to get down to the Fish Flats trail. It was steep but solid. Could be dicey after heavy skiier use tears it up. Fortunately, the climb back up was shorter as the turn off to another blue trail was near the bottom. The snow shoe trails were not rideable that day as they had recent heavy snows and low user traffic... too soft. I would image after a weekend of heavy use and little to no snow accumulation they would be good riding. The daily fee is $15... worth it for the consistent grooming. I give it 4 stars for a) always groomed, b) fantastic views, c) great attitude towards fatbikers. I look forward to going back when the singletrack is rideable.
