Last April when the scope of the pandemic and it’s associated regulations became clearer, there was legitimate concern that we might not be able to hold many events in a typical fashion, if at all. NENSA quickly gathered regional leaders from clubs, industry and medical professionals to gain insight and plot a course that would provide […]
Massachusetts was the first state to hold their Eastern State Champs race this past Saturday at the Leo J Martin Ski Track in Weston!

The MA event consisted of a 6k individual […]

Visit our Mini-Fest Homepage on the NENSA website where you’ll find support materials, information, and ideas for organizing a Mini-Fest as well as information about upcoming Mini-Fest […]
We look forward to welcoming and hosting friends from Maine on the beautiful trails at Quarry Road! The theme for the weekend is State by State United We Ski!

We continue to forge ahead into a winter of change. Many regions have created local solutions to reduced travel and number of competitive events able to be held. We remain strong and committed to keeping our community as safe as possible during a pandemic. We also realize that this comes with understandable frustration, especially for […]
As we bravely stride into 2021 we are fortunate for folks like Bob Haydock who are adapting to a Virtual world by creating competitive and fun-focused events.

In her own right, Størmer Steira was a Norwegian ski star. Back in 2005, Størmer...

With swaths of bare ground peeking through the melting snow, skis rattling through tracks and swooshing across the lanes, and short-sleeved race tops, World Championship racing continued in a warm Oberstdorf, Germany for the men’s 15k/15k skiathlon.
