Help us bring groomed cross-country skiing to the Hamilton area.
The North Shore Nordic Association, a 501C3 tax exempt non-profit charitable organization formed by local residents with the goal of acquiring and operating ski grooming equipment on some of our local trails. The NSNA will work with local land stewards to groom a classical and skate ski lane on several existing trails including Patton Park, portions of the Discover Hamilton Trail, Appleton Farms and Grassrides, Bradley Palmer State Park and hopefully Sagamore Hill.
The NSNA is seeking funding from multiple sources to acquire an 84” Groomer and a special utility snowmobile to tow the groomer. Additionally we seek to acquire a trailer, operating insurance, fuel, signage, trail maps and signs. Please consider making a donation in any amount on our website www.nsnordic.org. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. WE need to raise a total of approximately $25,000 to get the operation up and running for the winter of 2015-2016. Subsequent years will only require funds to operate and maintain our equipment and pay for fuel and insurance. The NSNA will be an entirely volunteer run operation and we are seeking anyone interested in helping out in any way.
Once we are operational all ski trail use will be free of charge and supported by donations. NSNA will issue donor cards, as a token of appreciation to those making a donation of at least $100.
NSNA is also seeking to partner with corporate sponsors to fund a portion of our capital campaign.
Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal of $10,000
and Win a luxury ski & stay trip at the wentworth in Jackson, NH!
We are right in the middle of our Fall Fundraiser, and we still have a long way before we meet our goal of $10,000. Help us raise money for the purchase of a second snow machine to increase our grooming capacity. The addition of a second vehicle will allow us to groom more areas, more frequently, as well as provide a backup to our primary vehicle. In turn, this will provide you and the rest of our community with more skiing options and areas to explore this winter!
As a special thank you for your donation, we are partnering with our friends in our sister city of Jackson, NH to offer a chance to win a deluxe Cross Country Ski and Stay package at the Wentworth Inn. Read more about this amazing trip here!
