Our Programs

The North Superior Ski and Running Club, Inc., (NSSRC) hosts competitive and non-competitive events such as Fisherman’s Picnic Running Race and Sawtooth International Cross Country Ski Race.

The NSSRC sponsors numerous youth programs including the Youth Ski League, Cook County High School Nordic Cross County Ski Team, Cook County High School Cross Country Running Team and Track and Field Team and Y-Ski.

We believe in encouraging physical Fitness through outdoor activities.

There is  great satisfaction in flexing your muscles clearing a trail and immediately seeing the results of your effort or hearing a child you have been coaching shout for joy after skiing down a big hill without falling.

Y-Ski
The North Superior Ski and Run Club sponsors a Youth Ski League (Y-Ski) every year to encourage kids to the learn and love the lifetime sport of Cross-Country Skiing.  Y-Ski is designed for kids from kindergarten through Sixth grade, and all ability levels are welcomed and accommodated.  The NSSRC has a wide variety of youth equipment for rent for the entire ski season for a nominal fee.  Y-Ski is a fun, family environment in an atmosphere of games, group activities, and just plain fun skiing on the Pincushion Ski Trails.


High School Cross Country Ski Team
Each winter the NSSRC sponsors the Cook County Nordic Ski team   The CCHS Nordic Team is based in Grand Marais, Minnesota and is funded and coordinated by the North Superior Ski and Run Club (NSSRC).  The team is made possible by the support of many volunteers, local supporters, local businesses, parents, and of course, the athletes themselves.  The team’s goal is to develop the technical skills and physical conditioning to ski faster, but most importantly, we want to have fun enjoying winter on skis.


High School Cross Country Running/Track and Field
The NSSRC also sponsors both the High School Running and Track and Field High School Teams.  Both of these sports are great “lifetime fitness” activities, and many High School athletes go on to enjoy many years of recreational running.  Each fall The NSSRC sponsors a High School Running race at the Pincushion Trails.
 

Trail Conditions

Grooming report for December 15, 2018:

Base 1-3 inches.  Skate lanes were groomed on our wider trails yesterday morning.  The North Advanced loop was combed and tracked for additional skate and classic skiing options.  Morris Maze and Hilfiger Hill were groomed for the first time this season.  These two circuits are in poor condition due to uneven terrain, bare spots and debris poking through thin snow cover.  They should be considered as back-country, classic style routes at this time.  Warming temperatures forecast for the coming week do not bode well for our system.  Although we expect skiing to continue, there will be more bare ground, wet spots and ice patches.  Use caution.
