NENSA is the Olympic development organization for cross-country skiing in New England as well as the umbrella for most organized nordic skiing events. NENSA hosted or sanctioned over 80 educational, recreational, and competitive events last year at venues across the Northeast. NENSA sponsors and directs races, workshops, athlete camps, roller ski races, recreational events, coaches clinics, hikes, and trips abroad throughout the 12-month calendar.

NENSA is recognized by the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) as the 501 (c) (3) entity responsible for hosting, directing, and sanctioning the wide range of activities that take place year-round in cross-country skiing in New England. In 2003 — 2004, NENSA had well over 3000 individual members of all ages, among them past and present Olympians, future hopefuls, and recreational skiers.

NENSA employs three full time staff members: an Executive Director, an Operations Director, and an Information Services Director. This staff, working in coordination with both the Board of Directors and supporting Committees, has in the last eight years changed the face of cross-country skiing in New England.
