Our mission is still based on the philosophy of Norwegian Polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen who saw skiing and winter sport as the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
Established in 1872 we are one of the first organized ski clubs in America and the oldest continuously operated. Based in Berlin, New Hampshire we serve the Androscoggin Valley by providing groomed ski trails at Milan Hill State Park in Milan, NH.
Nansen Ski Club is dedicated to providing a healthy outdoor experience for children, youth, and adults of the surrounding communities as well as out of state visitors who are always welcome to a wonderful winter experience.
We are pleased to announce a successful ninth season at our new Milan Hill location since moving from Success Loop in Berlin. We are expanding the existing trail network this fall with some new flat connector trails to allow for practicing technique and increase access to other trails with easier terrain.
The winter activities at Milan Hill State park are funded and sustained almost entirely by member donations to the Nansen Ski Club. Your support directly finances ski events, grooming efforts, insurance, and continuous trail improvements. Thank you and happy skiing.
