Special PistonBully Funding

A huge shout out to our sponsors that help provide additional funding this year for our, new to us, PistonBully.

Our old grooming machine died unexpectedly at the begining of the 2021-22 ski season. This led to grooming the entire season using just snowmobile pulled equipment while the board searched for a machine and funding for the same. The following donors stepped up to help with the funding.

DNR Cross-Country Ski GIA Program Funding

The Cross-Country Ski GIA Program is funded fully from revenue from the sale of the Great Minnesota Ski Pass. Revenue from the ski pass is deposited into the Grant in Aid dedicated account. Norpine depends on the GIA program for trail maintenance and grooming revenue. Skiers on Norpine Trails are required to have a Great MN Ski Pass in their possession when skiing our trails. Ski Passes can be purchased using the logo at the top of the webpage or from many of the resorts and some businesses in the area. The cost is $10 for a day pass, $25 for a one year pass and $70 for a 3 year ski pass.

Please show your support by making an additional financial contribution to Norpine. We now have capability to take online donations through PayPal (see DONATE button at top of page) or an old-fashioned check or money order would also light up our life!
