The Northwoods Nordic Ski Club

The Northwoods Nordic Ski Club was established in Rhinelander in 1983 as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization (501c3) corporation.  We are a group of individuals dedicated to providing outdoor silent sports recreation to the public with an emphasis on cross-country skiing. 

We provide financial, coaching and staffing support for the Rhinelander High School Nordic Ski Team, Rhinelander Middle School Nordic Ski Team and the Sno-dags. 

We maintain approximately 30 kilometers of cross-country ski trails at three locations:

  • The Rhinelander Northwood Nordic Ski Trails near the Rhinelander Northwood Golf course
  • The Rhinelander Community Trails near the Rhinelander High School (RHS)
  • The CAVOC Trails just east of Rhinelander.

We hold an annual Candlelight cross-country ski event at the Rhinelander Community Trails and host Collegiate, United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA), High School, Middle School, and Youth Cross Country Ski Races at the FIS homologate trails at the  Cedrig A. Vig Outdoor Classroom (CAVOC) trails .

Our Mission
