Our Mission

To foster the sport of cross country skiing in the Rhinelander area by maintaining high-quality venues and supporting progressive developmental ski-programming for our youth, community and visitors.

The Northwoods Nordic Ski Club

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

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

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

We also provide principle support for all area youth ski programs including Rhinelander High School Nordic Ski Team, Rhinelander Middle School Nordic Ski Team and the Sno-dags.
