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 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.

NSNA Updates

We've Added Sagamore Hill to Our Trail System!

Carol Catalano

We are excited to announce our recently granted permission to provide groomed skiing in the Essex County Greenbelt Association’s Sagamore Hill Conservation Area! Due to a recent $5.1 million fundraising effort by ECGA, the preexisting John J. Donovan Reservation and Sagamore Hill trail system were combined with six adjacent privately owned conservation easements, creating a nearly 1000-acre area of permanently protected open space. Also new for the season is a parking area, currently under construction, allowing convenient access to the trail system.

The reservation’s hilly terrain provides challenging and exciting nordic ski possibilities, with a combination of wide open fields and wooded terrain. For those up to the challenge, the rocks at the very top of the hill allow skiers to view the Great Marsh, Essex River, and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. We can't wait to see you out on the new trails!
