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.

Our Goals for this Season

Carol Catalano

Cooling Autumn weather is getting us in the mood for a (hopefully) snowy winter here at North Shore Nordic. We can't wait to be out on the trails with you this season, and we're preparing to get our community ski trail grooming operation into gear.

What makes it all possible is your generous donations to our fundraising efforts, including the one we have going on right now: our sale of custom Nordic wear from Craft. Order yours today!

We have some ambitious goals for this season, but with your help we're confident we can achieve them.

1. Continuing to expand our trail network. We hope to groom even more trails for you than we did last year in Bradley Palmer State Park, Appleton Farms, Pingree School, Pingree Woodland, and Patton Park.

2. Improve our trail map. We are working on an interactive version of the map on our website, which will allow trail users to see what's been groomed recently and access other real-time information about trail conditions.

3. Create helpful signage. Our groomed trails will now feature trailhead signage with maps, markers to compliment existing blazes and help people navigate, and graphics to help trail users enjoy the groomed surfaces without damaging the tracks.

4. Promote community access to groomed trails. We live in a beautiful area and are working hard to provide groomed ski trails for all to use and enjoy.  Stay tuned for news on ski clinics and other community events.


Our fundraising sale of Nordic wear from Craft will help our effort in the following ways:

1. A portion of each sale goes directly into our funds to help us with our operating costs.

2. Apparel sales help us attract sponsorship from new corporate donors who benefit by having their logo on the clothing.

3. Wearing NSNA gear increases our visibility within the community, which means more support and awareness of our mission to provide community ski trails for all to enjoy.

We hope this convinces you to join us! If you have questions about ordering the custom Nordic wear, please see our FAQ post. If you're looking for other ways to get involved, please consider a direct donation on our website, signing up to volunteer with us, or forwarding this message to a friend.

Thank you from the NSNA Board of Directors,
