    Season Wrap Up It was a very snowy, cold and windy Winter this past season. We had numerous equipment breakdowns and it was a very expensive season for our organization. We are working to optimize our grooming regimen for next so that we can still maintain excellent XC ski trails at an affordable cost to the organization. As an non-profit organization we need volunteers to help carry on the many tasks we perform to insure that these trails stay open in the future. I strongly urge anyone who enjoys these trails and has some free time, to contact us and become a volunteer. We need help with mailings and brochures as well as on the trail maintenance and raising money.
    Enjoy the Summer and Fall and we look forward to seeing you next Winter on the trails.

  • Welcome to the Norpine Trail Association website. The Norpine Trail Association's purpose is to improve, maintain and promote the XC ski trails between Cascade River State Park and Lutsen Mountain. This includes Deer Yard loop, Hall-Massie Loops and the various connector trails. In the last year we have obtained major grants to purchase grooming equipment and to make major improvements to the trail system. We have many opportunities for volunteers such as trail clearing and maintainence activities throughout the year. We also have a need for members and sponsors to help keep these trails viable and well maintained.
