Our mission is to promote all forms of Nordic skiing as a healthy activity for all ages and abilities. Among our core activities are maintaining and grooming over 140 kilometers of ski trails for recreation and touring, as well as performance skiing and racing.
Serving Anchorage's Nordic ski community requires the year-round commitment of a small but dedicated staff, hundreds of hard-working volunteers, and a fleet of specialized heavy equipment. More importantly, the generous support of our members and donors is what
makes all of this possible.

HILLSIDE:  This is it!  Tom has declared this his last day of grooming on the Hillside.  This morning he groomed the first half of the Spencer and said it's still in pretty good shape, until the top where the dirt makes an appearance.  Double Bubble, Besh and the Hillside loop near Coach's Cut-off are all in marginal shape.  Tom says if you're looking for the most skiable trails, try the Spencer and the Richter.  Enjoy! 

All the Groomers would like to thank you for a great season and for your contributions to NSAA!  Your continued support and donations go a long way to ensure that the trails are maintained and safe  for everyone to enjoy....year-round!  The Groomers have a busy summer planned with some much needed trail maintenance, fleet repairs and equipment modifications.  Enjoy the trails all over Alaska and have a great summer!

Happy Easter! Sunday, April 20, 2014


HILLSIDE:  Matt was out chasing the Easter Bunny this morning as he brushed up the skate lanes on the Hillside.  Please be advised that he has posted a TRAIL CLOSED sign on the South Spencer trail.  He said the sunshine and water run-off really did a job on that section and there just isn't enough snow to move around.  The number of skiing days are dwindling rapidly, so eat that chocolate bunny then head on out and enjoy the sunshine today!

HILLSIDE:  While the grooming has come to an end for the season at Kincaid and in Chugiak and Eagle River, the trails on the Hillside are still hanging on.  Matt was out this morning and brushed up the Lighted Loops, Double Bubble and Gas Line.  He said there is a lot more ice, a lot more water, and a lot more dirt.  If he has time today, he may take the snow machine out and groom the Spencer.  Ski with caution and enjoy the Spring skiing while it lasts!
