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

Wednesday March 14th update

Carol Catalano


It's a beautiful day to get out and ski!  Yesterday's hard work gave us a head start on preparing trails, and we were out again early this morning fine tuning. Appleton Farms and Grassrides trails are groomed to skate and classic from both the Diary Store and Highland Street's Lamson lot.

Special thanks to groomers Tom Catalano, John Kenney, Aidan MacDonald, and Greg Horner who worked till after dark at Appleton Farms. With whiteout conditions making grooming in open fields too difficult, they headed into the Grassrides where they cut and cleared a half dozen fallen trees from last week's Nor'easter!
