CCNS allocates funds to clubs, contributing to the delivery of grass roots programs, educating coaches, and training officials. Donors are the catalyst for creating our sport’s future volunteer leaders, and helping our clubs make a difference in people’s lives.  Thank-you!


We appreciate all referrals to financial supporters.  It takes a village to raise the next generation of cross-country ski leaders.

We’re open to all offers of support – including financial, volunteer time, professional services, and ideas of every size.
