Announcements
NSSRC is pleased to receive a grant from the North Star Ski Touring Club to further develop our youth programs and special events. Grant funds were used to purchase dryland training equipment for the Superior Edge, a new program for the High School Nordic Team to keep the students active and outdoors through the summer. In addition, grant funds were used to purchase more ski equipment so as the Nordic Team grows, ski equipment is available for those who need it. Grant funds are also being used to purchase course markers and other items needed for hosting special events.
