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.

About 1" of snow fell last night and Craig is spending the day in the shop nursing the PB600.  She has a broken belt on one of the tracks so he is putting a splice in it.  The snow that fell is nice and dense and will ski great today... excellent for both classic and skating.
Today, there will be some pre-race inspections going on for the State HS Championship races on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There may be some flagging and double tracks on Elliot's, World Cup, Roller Coaster and the Lekisch 2.9....just something to look out for and to please not skate over it.
Tom was out last night and groomed most of Hillside, with the exception of the Ridge.  He put new track everywhere except a few connectors and was able to make it down the Tour of Anchorage Trail and over to APU.   There was about 1" of new snow to work with and he spent some time preparing the Soccer Field at APU for the TOA starting area.  He and Chuck have been doing some preliminary preparations for the upcoming race.  Lots of brush cutting and limb trimming going on for those two guys.
Chuck is out today touching up the skate lanes at Hillside and put some fresh track down on the Gasline. The new snow fall is setting up beautifully, providing for some awesome skiing for both classic and skating.
Bill is out today working at Beach Lake.  They received about 2" last night...time to start all over again Bill:)
Tuesday night, he groomed the Coyote Trails at Mirror Lake Middle School and said they came out great.  Yesterday he had been to Eagle River HS , Yosemite Dr. Trails and Bartlett .

The trails have set up and are in good shape for classic and skating. Enjoy!
