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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our 2017 Custom Nordic Wear

Carol Catalano

Our Craft Nordic wear fundraiser sale is now in full swing. We heard your questions and have done our best to answer below. Happy Shopping!

How do I determine which size to order?

The Nordic wear has an athletic fit, meaning a tighter next to skin feel. The hoodies and primaloft items are somewhat more relaxed, but still have a sporty fit. For a looser fit, order the next larger size. For exact measurements click on the Craft size chart.

Which article of clothing is best for me?

It really depends on how you ski and what you're looking for! If you need something warm, choose the heavier-weight thermal items. The thermal jacket is the warmest jacket offered; the thermal cycling jersey is a great option even if you don’t cycle – it is made of an insulating material that is slightly thicker than the race jersey. If you overheat easily while skiing, the race jersey is a great option. If you're just looking for something comfy to wear while you sip your hot chocolate, we love the hoodie and the new primaloft jacket/vest. More detailed descriptions for each item can be found in our store.

Is there anything new this year?

Yes! This year we're offering Craft stowable primaloft jackets and vests in both gray and black. Like the hoodie, they're more casual than the custom Nordic wear, but they make a better outerwear layer than the hoodie. We have both men's jackets/vests and women's jackets/vests.

Is there a production minimum?

No! Unlike last year, there are no minimum order requirements before Craft will produce the custom clothing. Even if yours is the only order of a particular item, you'll still receive your clothing!

When is the clothing available to order?

The clothing is only available for a very limited time. The store is open now and will remain open until Sunday, October 1.

How do I get my order?

We will ship your order directly to you.

When will my order arrive?

In time for the holidays! Did we mention these make great gifts? Your custom printed Nordic wear order will arrive in December; the hat, hoodie, and primaloft jacket/vest will be here by late November.

What does NSNA do with proceeds from the sales?

Proceeds from product sales help support trail improvements, trail network mapping, and signage. Right now we are gearing up for trail maintenance so we are ready to groom trails as soon as the snow falls!
