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


With cooler temperatures, your fantastic volunteers Mike and Steve took snow machines out this morning and scratched up the Mize and Margaux's down to the bridge.  Matt used the Pisten Bully and went over the Snow Making Loop and the Stadium.

At 6:30 a.m. it was 48 degrees at Bill's house in Chugiak.  Between that and the minimal base, he has decided to wait for cooler temperatures to groom.  Be careful and watch for debris on the trails should you decide to brave the conditions.  He'll be checking the status of the trails later today.
