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.




NSNA Mentioned in the Boston Globe

Carol Catalano

Thanks to our grooming efforts, our trails were mentioned as "prominent Nordic ski tracks" in a great article in the Boston Globe, entitled "The quiet joys of cross-country skiing." In the article, board member James Trudeau also shares why he loves cross-country skiing: "The joy of moving through the natural environment, the beauty of winter, the challenge of overcoming the weather. Simplicity. Silence. Self-reliance. There are no interruptions due to lifelines and slow lift rides. Like ice skating and cycling, there is a flow to cross-country skiing that’s a joy."
