Organization Background

Executive Board Members

The Lake Country Nordic Ski Club was started when a few local people got word that the Cass County Land Department would no longer be grooming the area ski trails.  Calls were made, dates were set, meetings attended and with the full approval of the Cass County Board of Commissioners and the support and guidance of the Cass County Land Commissioner the club was organized in November 2011.

There was immediate response to news releases and the membership grew quickly to over 50 people, with many more showing interest in what was happening.

Funding was sought and approved from the DNR for Grant-in-Aid Program for recreational trails. We were on a perfect slope, gliding to the future of maintaining beautiful ski trails in Cass County.
