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.

Wednesday Grooming Update

Carol Catalano

We have been battling the elements, grooming in the sleet, the rain, and in the dark. With the low temperatures it has been difficult to groom this bulletproof snow, but we are trying. Kudos to board member Bob Carroll who was out at 4:00 am Wednesday at Appleton Farm! We were able to use the Ginzu groomer to literally cut up the frozen crust on the trails at Pingree and that was in good condition last night. Skating is okay in open areas like Patton Park and the Myopia Schooling Fields, where there is a track set as well. This morning we were able to groom Lamson Field, The Plains Loop, and part of the Farmstead as well as the trail along Goodhue Street. It is reported that the East side of Appleton is not in good shape.

Here is a video of volunteer groomer Dan Brosnan grooming in the rain during the storm on Tuesday. Lots of branches to clear!
