History of Jackson Ski Touring
The Jackson Ski Touring Foundation is a community based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, chartered in 1972 to maintain trails in and around the village of Jackson, NH. The “Foundation” maintains 150 km of trails that are considered by many to be the finest cross-country ski trails in the Eastern United States.
For more than 40 years, JSTF has worked to provide the best cross country skiing and snowshoeing experience anywhere. As a non-profit, this is what we do and this is our passion. We offer guests a family-friendly base lodge, top quality groomed cross-country skiing trails, purpose-built snowshoe trails, a superb ski school, fast and friendly service in our first-rate rental shop and a retail shop with excellent ski gear.
Though our mission remains the same as when we started back in 1972, times have changed a little over the past four decades and Jackson Ski Touring is also focused on addressing some of the social and environmental challenges we face today. Through the sport of cross country skiing and snowshoeing, JSTF strives to promote a healthy and active lifestyle working to combat obesity and health issues, reconnecting people with the natural world in this technological age, and protecting our natural resources through conservation easements and professionally developed forest stewardship plans.
