Club Membership and Donations

Membership Dues

Your membership dues are important to us and we thank you for your support! Please renew or become a member today!

The mission of the Ely Nordic Ski & Bike Club (ENSBC) is to promote cross-country skiing for fitness, competition, and wellness for people of all ages. We are run entirely by volunteers.

ENSC manages the Hidden Valley Recreation Area located on the east end of Ely, MN.

  • We build, groom, & mow the Hidden Valley trail system for year-round use.
  • We manage the Hidden Valley chalet and facilities.
  • We groom the Trezona Trail around Miner's lake.

Your membership plays a critical role in maintaining the trails and chalet for all area skiers and visitors, including the Minnesota Youth Ski League and the Ely Nordic Wolves Ski Team.

Paid Members Receive

*Basic membership dues would still apply to individuals or families who are also Trails Sponsors.
