Cross Country Nova Scotia is the provincial governing body for cross-country skiing in Nova Scotia. We support and represent our member clubs, throughout the year. Please reach out with questions, concerns, and suggestions. We’re here to help.
Organize a Club!
Do you live in a community that is interested in bringing cross-country skiers and nordic sports enthusiasts together? Consider forming a club. Membership offers the strength of connecting your group with cross-country skiers from other clubs across the province and the country, who are willing to share their expertise. Your group will also gain access to supporting resources.
There are many resources available to clubs who affiliate with Cross Country Nova Scotia. Funding opportunities exist to improve club programs, coach training, equipment, and skiing initiatives. We allocate funding to qualifying clubs in various forms including grants, fund-matching, and loans. View our Document Centre to review current funding opportunities.
