Year to Year History of North Stars (links below):
Each year includes Board members and activity highlights. 

A history of the North Star Ski Touring Club cannot begin without a few words concerning events prior to the 1967-68 season, our first year of operation. In 1965-66 the United States Ski Association formed a ski touring committee chaired by Norm Oakvik, and then Bob Larson, with the purpose of improving interest and participation in ski touring in the Twin Cities metro area and throughout the Central Division of the USSA. Membership in that committee, besides Norm and Bob, included Jinny Mcwethy, John O'Bleness, James Rupert and Dag Helgestad. (More)
