Our Mission

The Lodi Area XC Ski Club was formed in November, 2005, with the
mission of providing and promoting local cross-country skiing through
high school and middle school teams that compete around the state.  The
club has also developed a youth ski program and adult training groups.  On
top of that, the club promotes easy access to groomed trails located in the
center of Lodi as well as affordable programs and events for families. Ice
Age Nordic was established in 2011 to embrace surrounding communities
like Baraboo and Waunakee and promote a Tri-county ski program.  In
2016, the ski club changed it's name to the ICE AGE NORDIC SKI CLUB and
began development  of a second trail system in Waunakee.
