The National Nordic Foundation is a grassroots effort by American skiers to support American skiing.

During our annual Drive for 25 skiers from across the country have the opportunity to pair our collective donations with matching funding opportunities; amplifying our giving community and making the NNF mission: to support athletic excellence in developing Nordic athletes in the United States a vivid and exciting reality. Join the Drive today!

Where we are:

  • The 2022-23 ski season saw US Skiing continue its most successful run in our history: with a World Championship punctuating years of Olympic medals, World Cup podiums, and team medals at the World Junior Ski Championships. Closer to home, the SuperTour enjoyed its most robust competition in years with more skiers, from more clubs, in more places, competing than ever before. The premier domestic circuit was also boosted by the return of the NNF Cup, which was awarded with a cash prize for the first time ever, and saw an intense, season-long battle that spanned all the way to SuperTour Finals in March.
  • NNF Pillar Projects have already made possible a successful offseason, laying the scaffolding for US skiing to capitalize on its momentum this winter.
    • REG, NTG, and NEG, and U16 camps ran a successful program this summer, allowing many talented skiers to engage for the first time with the national development system.
    • International Exchanges – Top US juniors prepared to compete on a world-class level with their peers from around the world.
    • Trail to Gold and Athlete Grants – Partnering with the Women Ski Coaches Association (WSCA), NNF was able to add the Trail to Gold Fellowship – sponsoring a group of talented women coaches as they gain World Cup experience this season – to our Pillar Projects.

Where we are going:

  • We need your help to continue making Nordic skiing an equitable environment where the best American skiers can pursue every dream they have and inspire our wider Nordic community.
  • Pillar Projects: This winter, NNF will deliver funding that gives junior athletes their first international experience, bolsters the credentials of talented coaches on the World Cup, and helps those on a path to international competitive excellence stay the course.
  • SuperTour: NNF is again the title sponsor for the top domestic ski series in the country. Where skiers, and clubs have a chance to join together and push each other, and our sport, forward.
