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.

Two Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities with North Shore Nordic

Let's get ready to ski! We're hoping for the snow to come any day now. In the meantime, our work continues: we have two volunteer days planned, and we need your help.

The first one coming up is our Trail Carpentry Day, this Sunday, Dec 11 from 1pm to 4pm. Join our crew to build a platform for a bridge crossing and a trailhead kiosk.

Sign up for our Trail Carpentry Day on Dec 11 with just 3 steps:

  1. Click this link, then click the sign up button.

  2. Enter your email address* (You will not need to register an account on SignUp.com).

  3. Sign up! You'll receive an automated confirmation and reminders.

The second volunteer day we have coming up is our second Trail Maintenance Day of the season, on next Saturday, Dec 17 from 8am to 12pm. This time, we'll be working on trails near the Pingree School. Join us for a morning workout as we trim brush, remove boulders and make the trails wide enough for our grooming equipment. Please bring sturdy footwear and work gloves. If you have them, bring your own tools, such as a pick axe, lopper, handsaw, shovel, and rake. We could also use a stone bar/pry bar and gas weed trimmer. We'll meet at the Pingree School football field parking lot, located behind the main building.
