    The current lack of enough snow has delayed our start this year. This year Mark Delameter will be grooming the Norpine trails on the West end including Hall and Massie loops and Michael O'Phelan will be grooming the East end which includes the Deer Yard loop and Pioneer loop. Dave Howe will be doing the trails around Solbakken. We have some new grooming equipment this year and hope to have a great season if the snow gods smile at us. See you on the trails, and please become a member and support our efforts.

  • 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.
