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.

Saturday - Grooming Update

Carol Catalano

There is a groomed loop at Pingree School and through Pingree Woodland to Appleton. Use caution on trails in the woods as coverage is thinner than in open areas, and you may come across rocks and buried branches. We will be out grooming Appleton this morning, and hope to head over to Bradley Palmer and Patton Park this afternoon. Please be patient as this is our first major grooming. We are doing the very best we can. 

It was slow progress grooming last night as there were trees, branches, and brush down everywhere. Most of our board came out to help clear the trails, skiing ahead of the groomer. We had to use the winch on the sled to help move some of the trees across the trail. We made it through Pingree Woodland into Appleton Grass Rides where we came upon a big pile of downed trees blocking the trail, requiring a chain saw.
