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.

Matt called this morning to report that he groomed the Lake Loop, Horseshoe and Multi-Use Trail last night.  He finished around 11:30 pm, just when it started to snow!  So, expect to find some fresh stuff in the tracks.
This morning, Craig was out grooming for the SKAN 24 race today.  He reported 3" of new snow overnight and a little breezy.  The rest of the park is un-groomed but should be good skiing with all the new snow.  Time to get out there and pack the tracks and have a great day!

Today Kincaid will be the "home away from home" for the racers participating in the SKAN 24.  This race is under way and started at 10 am this morning and ends tomorrow morning at 10 am.  They'll be using most of the park, skiing the North side for 6 hours, then the South side for 6 hours, then back to the North side for 6 hours, backwards, and ending the last 6 hours on the South side going backwards.  (No, not skiing backwards...skiing the course the opposite direction;)    The trails are in excellent shape for classic and skating.  Have a great weekend!
Tom said the Hillside only received 1.5" of snow last night so he went out and groomed, with new track, the Lighted Loops, Double Bubble, Gasline and Service High School.  He was on his way to hit APU around 11:00 am.  The Richter was done yesterday.  Skiing is great for both classic and skating.  Have a wonderful weekend!
Bill got tired of waiting, so this morning he took the snow cat to Beach Lake Trails and groomed the entire park, with the exception of the Christy.  He spent the morning "bending the snowflakes to his will" as they ganged up and mocked him the whole way.  The battle has been lost, however, he may continue the fight later this evening.  In the meantime, the trails are in great shape for both classic and skating.  Enjoy!
