IN 2006, members of the Mt. Shasta area Nordic community, who wished to preserve and enhance the Nordic skiing infrastructure in Northern California, formed the Mt. Shasta Nordic Ski Organization. Today, the group’s goal is to ensure access and opportunities to all Nordic skiers by creating a welcoming community of passionate cross-country skiers. Not only are experienced skiers welcome, but so is anyone willing to learn Nordic skiing. The organization intends to benefit upcoming generations by creating opportunities to enhance and preserve Nordic skiing for all ages and abilities. To accomplish this, the nonprofit facilitates educational programs, competitive events, and participation in Nordic skiing as a fun, beneficial, physical activity.
The organization strives to encourage and support community health by inspiring an active winter activity beneficial to both mental and physical health, while also responding to the wishes and needs of the community for environmental responsibility, fiscal prudence and operational sustainability.
