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.

No new grooming today on the Snow Making Loop.  Craig said the snow is starting to get worn out and grooming it would make it deteriorate faster.  He did mention that there is 1/16" of new snow on top, so come on out and ski it down...ha, ha!

Beach Lake Trails:
Bill suggests rock skis if you plan on skiing the Beach.  Today he groomed Train Ride, Hill Loop, Old Lighted, Main St., and the Christy.  He mentioned that the trails may not set up very well due to the warm temperatures and the tired snow.  Enjoy!

Ricky has been out grooming the Snow Making Loop and the Stadium today.  Watch for a few thin, icy spots in the Stadium, otherwise the trails a looking good.

Beach Lake Trails:
Bill took the snow machine on the trails and mixed the 1/2" of fresh snow with the top layer of ground ice this morning.  He said that in some areas, small rock chips are starting to make their way to the surface and to really watch for these.  They are avoidable, but if you're worried about scratching your good skis, perhaps consider going back to your rock skis.  He made a few passes on the Chalet Loop, North Pasture, Junk Yard, Bridge, Appendix, Corral, Mama's, Sprint, Main St., CHS Stadium and the Swamp.   Watch out for the first (or last, depending on where you start) sharp corner on the Swamp from Main St....the ice is really encroaching on the trail.  Have fun! 

Tom took the snow cat out this morning and dressed up the skate lanes on all the Lighted loops, Gas Line, Double Bubble and the Spencer.  He also made a few passes around the soccer field at Service HS.  The trails are holding up even though they didn't get any new snow over the weekend.   Enjoy!

Happy March Everyone!!

Matt was on the trails last night and dressed up the Snow Making Loop.  He said it "went in like buttah" but is afraid that it may break down pretty fast because it didn't get that cold last night.  Get it before it turns to sugar.  Enjoy!
