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.

Our fantastic volunteers were out Saturday on snowmachines and groomed the lighted loops for skating.  Last night, the park had about an inch of new snow and covered up all their hard work...but the skiing is still great and more snow is always welcome!  Thank you.
Craig is occupied today with some mechanical issues that have surfaced.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day for those who have the day off!

Hillside also had about one inch of new snow last night, but that really didn't seem to make much of a difference, however, every little bit helps and we are grateful!  Tom made a pass on the lighted loops and attempted to resurrect the Stadium at Service H.S., but reported that it was pretty thin.  He has gone over the Gasline and set some new track there and mentioned that Double Bubble is still pretty good, but to watch for thin, icy spots especially on the hills.  On Friday, he groomed the entire Spencer Loop and the Richter Loop.

CHUGIAK/EAGLE RIVER                        
Bill was out this morning filling the really icy tunnels with more snow at Beach Lake/Chugiak H.S.  He is making a few passes on some of the trails to "freshen" them up a bit with a snowmachine and drag this afternoon.
