What does the KNSC do?

Untitled-1The mission of the KNSC is to promote the sport of cross-country skiing in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan for both youth and adults, and provide stewardship of the Maasto Hiihto and Churning Rapids trails.

These trails offer unsurpassed skiing, hiking, and biking on pleasantly varied and scenic trails, with breathtaking vistas of gorges, meadows, forests, and the lake.

Join the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) for friendship, community service, enjoyment of nature, and healthy exercise!
