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.


Happy Monday! January 7, 1:33p.m.

No grooming to report for Kincaid today.  Craig and Ricky are out trying to make magic happen at many of the middle schools today. If it were only that easy! 

Tom scratched up all the Lighted Loops, the Gasline, Double Bubble, Service High Stadium, and Randy's Loop (watch for dirt and rocks, etc.).  He said the tracks are still set and holding better than he thought they would.  He was going to head over to work on the Spencer and the Richter, however, his tiller broke and now he needs to get some parts and fix it.

CHUGIAK/EAGLE RIVER                        
Bill spent the morning on the Coyote Trails at Mirror Lake Middle School trying to put in a 1k loop out to the "X" and back, but returned with his head hung low and disappointed. He reported lots of ice and dirt...icy dirt, dirty ice. Not a great way to start the season for the middle schoolers. Thanks for the effort Bill!

He has since turned his attention to the trails at Beach Lake which, after a weekend of work, are quite fast and fun!  The groomed trails are the Sprint Loop, Mama's, North Pasture, Bridge Loop, Appendix Loop, Corral LoopLow Road, Swamp and the Stadium at Chugiak H.S.  There are still patches of ice here and there and a fair amount of debris from the wind, so please ski with caution. All other trails are too dangerous!

"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.
