    Status of Norpine Trails

    This winter we have been blessed with plenty of snow and the trails are being groomed on a regular basis. Pre-season maintenance was accomplished again this year with the help of the North Star Ski Touring Club and other volunteers, who manually cleared trails of encroaching tree branches and downed trees. A wet fall and soggy trail conditions made mowing the trails difficult but it got done. A special effort was made this fall to widen the trails and remove leaners that create problems when heavy wet snow falls. This work will make a difference this winter.

    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!
