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.

Thanks to All Who Made Our First Friend Raiser Dinner a Huge Success!

Carol Catalano

Nearly 100 of our friends and neighbors came to our inaugural Friend Raiser Dinner to meet each other, share enthusiasm for winter sports, take part in a raffle for great prizes, and celebrate a successful first season for North Shore Nordic Association's community ski trail grooming program. We have many people and organizations to thank for helping us put together such a fun event.

Firstly, we'd like to thank the Ipswich Ale Brewer's Table for graciously hosting all of us, and for donating a portion of the night's proceeds to help fund our next season.

We'd also like to recognize those who donated our excellent raffle prizes. Thank you to One Way Sport for providing the roller skis and poles. Thank you to the Trustees for offering the one year membership, including the parking pass to Crane's beach. And, thank you to Lark Fine Foods for donating the gift box of handcrafted cookies.

A big thanks is due to Speedpro Boston North, who donated the printing of our posters, and banner.

Finally, none of this would have been possible without our generous corporate sponsors. Our gratitude goes to Craft Sportswear, Brotchie Capital Management, and Catalano Architects.

Enjoy the warm weather, but hope for lots of snow this winter! We'll see you on the trails.
