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.

Good evening skiers!

We had some snow to work with today...finally!

At Kincaid, Craig reports that he track packed with a snow machine (no grooming implement) three lighted loops;  the Mize, Margaux's, and the Jodhpur.  The base is developing nicely but he still recommends rock skis.  He is also still making snow in the stadium to fortify what is already there.

On the Hillside, Tom says that he used a snow machine with a wing and worked to develop the base on the lighted loops and the Double Bubble.  He mentioned that the skiing is marginal as there are still some rocks showing.  Hillside only got 2-3 inches of new snow from this last system.

In Chugiak, Bill worked on the Beach Lake trails with a snow machine and a drag.  There are people skating, however there are still a few rocks and some dirt showing in places.  The trails to avoid are the Christi and the Meander.  Also, there isn't any snow in the tunnels yet.

It's a good start!  Ski safely and have fun.
