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.


Hi ho, hi ho... your groomers are ready to go!!

Tom, Craig and Bill are waiting for a lot more snow to pull the "big cats" out of the den, so in the meantime, some "base development" is keeping them busy.

Base development involves working the early snow, as gently as possible, to compact it so that it bonds to the trail.  We frequently do this by wheel packing the snow with three-wheelers.  Once the snow has bonded to the ground and there is enough of it, we'll move to snow machines with compaction wings.  We'll stay on snow machines until the trail has either adequate depth or hardness to carry the weight of the Pisten Bully.

Up on the Hillside, Tom has been working on the base and is pleased that the diehards on their rock skis are helping by skiing it down.  To assist him in his efforts, it would be best if we quit biking and hiking on the trails at this time.

Thanks and have a great weekend!  THINK SNOW!!
