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.

"UWAX is Back" Kincaid weather hotline is back online 248-UWAX (248-8929) will give Time, Temp in F, Wind direction, wind speed & humidity. Listen closely, - Hal, the automated voice, is a bit hard to understand. Huge thank you to Karl Volz for making that happen.

**Bill says the base temperatures are rising rapidly.  If the base starts to soften and you find that you are cutting in, please consider not skiing until the temperatures drop again.  If the trails re-freeze with ruts, it will be really difficult to repair.

KINCAID - Craig                                        

Matt was out very early this morning and re-tracked and smoothed over the skate lanes all over the Sisson Loop.  He said that if you're going to ski anything at Kincaid today, the Sisson is the place to be.  It's got good coverage and is protected from the wind.  Fortunately, he was able to get on it while the base was still cold.  He began to groom one of the lighted loops, but decided to back off as he was starting to do more harm than good, given the warm temperatures.  Watch for debris on the trails from the wind.

HILLSIDE - Tom                                         

Check yesterday's post.  Holding pattern today for weather.  Watch for debris on trails.

CHUGIAK/EAGLE RIVER - Bill              

Bill says the trails are currently glazed and hard.  Base temperature is 30 degrees.  It won't be much fun to ski at this time.
