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

Saturday morning March 17th

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Expect icy conditions in most places, with some sun softening later this morning in open areas. Appleton fields on the west side of the tracks are likely the best; they have the most snow, they were groomed last night and will be firm and fast, great for skating. Crust cruising is also a good option for skaters. Skiing ungroomed areas may be a better option for classic skiers in places.

Appleton Grassrides (woods) is thin and rutted with bare spots. We hope to groom the fields off highland street this AM.

Pingree woods are not yet open: a second crew is headed there this morning to continue tree removal; grooming will follow if there’s adequate snow. Pingree School is also not groomed.

Bradley Palmer surely has snowmobile tracks that may be good in fields with some sun to soften them.

Thanks for another great season and your support!
