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

Monday's update- the sun did come out

Carol Catalano

Weekdays are more difficult for us to fill all of the grooming shifts, but today we had several dedicated volunteers. Early this morning Aidan groomed Pingree School, though high winds today have covered some of the trails in the open areas. Later, volunteers Ben and Greg groomed from Pingree school through Harvard Forest and across Cutler road into Appleton farms.  They encountered high winds and drifting snow in the Appleton fields. In the Plains Field near Highland street, they groomed 5 laps of a 1.5 k loop, with room for skating and a classic track.  While tonight's wind will fill in parts of the groomed trail, future groomers will benefit from this wide base of packed snow. Dan and Bill took the next shift and groomed Williams Field and other parts of east Appleton. Tom is out right now grooming Pingree again and track packing trails in Bradley Palmer so they should groom up nicely with our Ginzu Groomer tomorrow. Enjoy the trails and don't forget to donate.
