About Us


History of the club

The Cayuga Nordic Ski Club’s purpose is “the promotion and encouragement of Nordic skiing as a sport, healthful exercise, recreational activity and as a means of enjoying the outdoors.” To achieve this purpose, the club organizes Nordic skiing events suitable for skiers of all abilities. These include tours, ski technique clinics, waxing clinics and races. The club also promotes the exchange of information on ski trails and snow conditions in areas around Ithaca. The club meets two times a year for dinner and social time, in the fall to plan the winter events, and in the spring to talk about how the season went.
