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 took the Pisten Bully out this morning and broke the glaze and set new tracks on Margaux's, Jodhpur, the Stadium and the Lekisch.  He said he was beginning to see a lot more dirt out there.  It was 32 degrees and warming up at the time of his report, therefore, it was time to take the cat back to the den for a nap. 

Tom took the Pisten Bully out and groomed the Besh Loop, Hillside Loop and the parking lot connectors, the Gasline with track (marginal) and the Double Bubbles.  He said it all turned out pretty well, same as yesterday, and that it's a "skaters world".   He attempted the Spencer with the snow cat but had to park it...the trail just couldn't take it.  He'll go out on the snowmachine to Service High School and scratch up the Stadium a bit then head over to the Tour Trail and take care of some downed trees.  No grooming this weekend until late Sunday evening OR Monday morning.  Have a great one!

Bill attempted to groom with the Pisten Bully last night at Beach Lake but was thwarted.  He unloaded it and entered the gate to the trails but noticed that as he drove, it broke entirely through the base to the dirt.  Back to the den for that cat too!  He's out there today on a snowmachine and will give us an update later.
