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 Trail Summit 2016

Last night, we participated in the North Shore Trail Summit, hosted by Seaside Cycle. Our President, Tom Catalano, presented to the attendees to tell them about North Shore Nordic and our goals and accomplishments in our first year as an organization (of which there were many!). The response was great! Attendees noted that our first year's efforts were greatly appreciated, and everyone was enthusiastic about working with us for the next season.

Attendees also heard from many other organizations who are working hard to protect and improve the trail system on the North Shore. Be sure to check them out: Cape Ann Trail StewardsEssex County Trail Association (ECTA)New England Mountain Bike Association (NEMBA)Greenbelt - Essex County's Land TrustBeverly Open Space and Recreation and The Trustees of Reservations
