KNSC Tractor Purchase Thanks to Capital Campaign

October 28, 2018 – Thanks to the John and Melissa Besse Foundation and more than 30 other families and individuals, KNSC has purchased a new John Deere tractor with a bucket and backhoe. This equipment, along with the planned purchase of other attachments, will allow the club to be proactive in improving drainage and the trail surface and extend the skiing season.

 

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!

Support the trails – donate your Econo Food receipts… 

Each winter, you may drop your receipts off in the chalet or mail them to KNSC.
