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.

North Shore Nordic of Hamilton Announces Our $10,000 Gift Matching Challenge

Carol Catalano

Thanks to two of our sponsors, today we are launching a gift-matching challenge.

- Eric Schenker, Hamilton resident and CEO of Craft Sportswear USA, has committed Craft to be our title sponsor. Craft will match the first $5,000 in gifts we receive in 2015.

- Peter Brotchie, Wenham resident, avid skate skier and CIO of Brotchie Capital Management LLC in Peabody MA has generously added another $5,000 to this matching challenge.

This means your 2015 donation will be matched 1:1 up to $10,000! All 2015 donations of $25 or more will receive a cookie gift pack from Lark Fine Foods of Essex. All 2015 donations of $100 or more will receive an NSNA embroidered Craft Sportwear hat.

Here’s where we stand at this point: 

  • Appleton Farms has invited us to groom right up to their Dairy Store, where they will sell hot chocolate, tea and snacks and provide parking and bathrooms!
  • Pingree School has granted us access to groom across their campus to connect to Bradley Palmer.
  • The Arctic Bearcat utility snowmobile has arrived, a major milestone in our fundraising!  
  • We are still raising funds to pay for a grooming machine to tow behind the snowmobile.  

Fundraising Goals:

We have much to celebrate, but we still need your support. We are now halfway to our initial goal of raising $25,000 for capital costs and $7,000 for operating costs. The NSNA is a completely volunteer organization with virtually no overhead, which means 100% of your contribution will go directly to getting us up and running. Please help us by making a donation
