Winter is rapidly approaching, and you know what that means - XC Ski Season is almost here!

This winter, Nevada Nordic is preparing to groom a cross country ski trail at the Mountain Golf Course. The course will be narrow, 8 to 10 feet wide, and carefully designed to ensure no adverse impact on the fairways. We are almost ready, but we need one last thing to turn this course into a reality. We are looking for financial support to purchase a small SnowCAT.

We need a SnowCAT to help us groom trails after heavy Sierra storms. Snowmobiles can maintain, but not establish, a level graded trail, and we require a tiller due to the constant freeze/thaw we experience on most days. Luckily for us, we have located a reasonably priced SnowCAT that is in very good condition. It is the right size to groom narrow trails on the golf course, and more importantly, it comes with a blade necessary to level trails after storms. AND it has a tiller! It also has the advantage of being trailer-able.

The cost of the SnowCAT with a trailer is $27,300. With an additional $2,500, we can also improve the track-setter for classic tracks and NN should be SnowCAT set for the next decade! 

Please consider donating to support this initiative and help bring this great asset into our community. Please also keep in mind that we intend to use this equipment at the Mt Rose area once we have secured all of the appropriate permits. 

The board has agreed to match the first $10,000 of donations. 

Donations can be made by check to Nevada Nordic mailed to PO Box 5406, Incline Village, NV 89450, or by credit card on our donation page.

Thank you for supporting community XC ski trails in Nevada!
