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.

Trail & Grooming Updates

Sunday - First Grooming Update of the Season!

Carol Catalano

We're excited to give you the first groomed trails of the season! We were out late last night with our sled and groomer at the Pingree School, and this morning we went to the Appleton Farms Dairy Store to groom tracks starting there.

You will find groomed trails at the Pingree athletic fields, to the north of the school building. Best parking is the hockey rink lot. The trail is groomed starting parallel to the drive.

In Appleton, we've groomed the Williams Field Loop, the Farmstead Connector, the Plains Loop and Underhill Trail. Some of the snow at Appleton was a little shallow, but we've filled in patches where we could.

We groomed all the trails with a corduroy skate skiing surface, and where the snow was deep enough we added classic tracks as well.

To see a map of the trails, please visit our maps page. Most of the currently groomed trails are at the eastern side of the map, starting from the Appleton Dairy Store.

Thanks so much to our volunteers who worked so hard to get this done!
