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 www.nsnordic.org. 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.

A Weekend Getaway at the Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT)

Jaime Reynolds

Gliding over undulating snowfields on pristine new tracks set by North Shore Nordic Association groomers may be nirvana, but it’s not the only way to enjoy a truly Nordic experience.

I was the lucky winner of the raffle prize at the North Shore Nordic association fundraiser last June - a weekend getaway at the Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) in Alstead NH. I conscripted my brother and two outdoor sports loving friends, planning an early January backcountry skiing adventure.   

The impeccably furnished Hilltop House - one of 5 homes available to WCT members – provides the perfect, serene base for a wide range of outdoor activities on the Association’s 3,000 acre woodland playground.  Hiking, fishing, swimming, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, shooting, mountain or gravel bike exploration, all are available right outside the door, year-round. 

Lack of skiable snow cover didn’t stop us from hiking miles of well marked trails, debating what animal made those fresh wildlife tracks, and spooking a few quail in the process.  And it certainly didn’t stop us from working up an appetite appropriately sated by classic Swiss Fondue accompanied by Savoie and Austrian whites.  

You don’t need to fly to Scandinavia to find Hygge*. Check out https://tonewct.weebly.com for more information on and how you, too, can enjoy this unique property. 

*Hygge is a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment.
