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.

Craig is out this morning in the snow cat and has groomed the Snow Making Loop and the Stadium with track around the perimeter.  He has gone over the Mize and plans to re-groom all the Lighted Loops setting fresh track as he goes.   He mentioned that only  1/8" of snow had fallen over night.
*FYI- to get to the Snow Making Loop, park in the Stadium Parking Lot, depart the Stadium on Margaux's, ski around and go through the lower tunnel, go straight up the hill by the Biathlon Range, turn right and ski across the upper range, follow the trail back to the Lekisch Tunnel and back to the Stadium.

About an inch of new snow fell on the Hillside last night.  Tom took the snow cat out and groomed the second half of the Spencer, the Richter Loop, all the Lighted Loops and Double Bubble.  He also put down new track on the Gasline and knocked down the soccer field at Service HS and said it was in pretty good shape:)  The new snow was helpful and prettied things up a bit, not to mention better skiing to be had!

Beach Lake received a little over an inch of snow last night, so Bill is out in the snow cat grooming most of the inner loops.  He feels that the base is just a little too soft to continue in the snow cat, so he'll switch over to the snowmachine and groom the outer loops this afternoon.
