The Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee is a year round recreation and social club.
Active volunteer members arrange ski and snowshoe trips to northern Wisconsin, Upper Michigan and in the Milwaukee area.
When snow disappears, members enjoy:
• biking • camping • hiking • canoeing
Social events includes:
• picnics • meetings with interesting speakers
• dining • board game nights and more
The Nordic Ski Club of Milwaukee was founded in 1971 to promote cross-country skiing in Wisconsin. Club founders helped design ski trails in the Kettle Moraine State Forest (McMiller and Nordic trails). We have introduced many young people to cross-country skiing. We have members of all ages. Some are still skiing in their 80s.
Our club is involved with the Wisconsin Nordic Network and are a sponsor of the Kortelopet Scholarship program. We voice our concerns to the State about conservation of ski/hiking trails in State forests and we help maintain trails at Lapham Peak.
Active Volunteers: Our club is run by and for members. We have scores of volunteers who plan our programs, give free lessons and clinics, run meetings, lead trips and activities, and handle the administrative tasks. Consider joining one of our committees: program planning, clinics & lessons, trails, membership, newsletter, marketing & PR, records and photos, Service Auction, youth, web site, outreach (contacts with other groups), and volunteer coordination. We reward officers, key committee chairs and trip leaders with discounts on our ski trips.
Your enthusiasm and involvement keep us going!
