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.

Dedicated NSNA grooming teams worked in two-hour shifts from early morning through evening Friday, Saturday and Sunday to repair equipment, clear trees and limbs, and groom trails at Bradley Palmer, Pingree School, Pingree Woodland, Appleton Grass Rides and Appleton Farms! 

We hope you had a chance to ski this weekend! We really enjoyed meeting many enthusiastic skiers on the trails. Share your photos and comments on Facebook.

Don't forget to support North Shore Nordic's all volunteer community trail grooming efforts with a donation! Fuel, repairs, signs, insurance and myriad other expenses go into making this organization work. 

Stay tuned for grooming reports for the upcoming midweek storms and be safe.
