  • New XC Shelter Built this Fall
  • Norpine Association with the funding and major help from the North Star Ski Touring Club and the Quam family, put up a three sided memorial shelter at the intersection of the Deer yard loop, the end of the Short Loop and the trail down to Cascade River State Park. The shelter is a memorial to Terry Quam, who passed away prematurely, and was an avid XC skier and lover of the Norpine trails. The memorial is dedicated to Terry and for all XC skiers to enjoy and reflect on the beauty around them when they sit and rest in the shelter. Enjoy!

  • 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.
