The Nansen Ski Club is the oldest continually operating ski club in America, established in the late 1800's. We provide groomed Nordic ski & snowshoe trails at Milan Hill State Park in northern New Hampshire, while we also work to restore "The Big Nansen" - a 172 foot ski jump which hosted the first Olympic jumping trials in 1938.


Our mission is to bring outdoor winter recreation and fun to the people of the North Country and beyond. We are 100% volunteer operated, with our work made possible through memberships, donations and sponsorships from our generous local business community.

Trail Conditions

"The Nansen Ski Club is a 100% volunteer operated club, which means our board of directors keep pretty busy handling the administration and grooming tasks of the club. Often the members of the club have a better sense of trail conditions than we do. That being the case, if you're interested in getting a sense of what trail conditions are like now in the moment, simply ask the question to our great community of folks on our Facebook page. Having said that, we will send out a notice on Facebook each time our grooming team goes out to do work.
