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.



Get Involved

We are looking for volunteers to help with trail maintenance and grooming. We also are looking for volunteer help with temporary signage, policing the trains for litter and general cleanliness. NSNA is also looking for social media experts who can help design and implement a social media campaign.

Make a Donation

Help us today by making a donation. Because we are entirely volunteer run, 100% of your contribution goes toward the cost of our operations. With your help, we will continue bringing community ski trail grooming to the North Shore of Massachusetts every winter.

Would you like to donate stock rather than cash? We offer that option to our donors. To do so, click the button below.

Volunteer with Us

As a completely volunteer run organization, we are always looking for new people to help us fulfill our mission of creating a network of groomed trails that is freely accessible to the public. Please see a list of our current needs below.

Trail Maintenance volunteers

Our trail maintenance volunteers make sure that the trails are safe and enjoyable for all by preparing bare surfaces for grooming, removing obstacles, keeping the trails clean, and identifying areas where the groomed track needs to be touched up.

Social Media Volunteers

As a social media volunteer, you will be a public ambassador for our mission on our facebook, twitter, and instagram accounts. You will also update the community with trail reports and news items on our website, and streamline the sharing of this content among the different social platforms.

Office Intern

Our office intern will help the "behind the scenes" operation of the North Shore Nordic Association run smoothly. You will also help manage fundraising campaigns and event planning.

Groomer Operators

As a groomer operator, you will be trained in the use and maintenance of our snowmobile and ginzu groomer. You and other operators will be responsible for grooming our trail network after a snowfall, and touching up groomed surfaces in need of repair.
