Northwest Nordic Ski Club, a non-profit ski club catering to Chicago area cross-country
skiing enthusiasts, is dedicated to encouraging participation in cross-country skiing.
The group was founded 20 years ago by cross country skiers in the northwest Chicago
suburbs. Our activities encourage physical fitness, friendships and increased awareness
of the outdoor environment.
