Wautoma, Wisconsin

800-253-7266, ext. 123


Part of Nordic Mountain, Nordic Wake Park is the nation’s first cable park at a ski resort. While it’s only open during the non-snow season, Nordic Wake Park is also Wisconsin’s first cable park. Operated on a private pond with plentiful trees, the Sesitec System 2.0 is well-protected from wind. Ideal for riders of all ability levels, the park is set amidst beautiful scenery and is operated on the weekends only by a friendly staff. There is Liquid Force gear to test on-site and numerous beautiful campgrounds and lakes nearby. The closest shops are Fort Fremont Marine, just 20 minutes away, and Redline Watersports, an hour and 40 minutes away.
