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.

It got just cold enough for Ricky to make a pass on all the Lighted Loops at Kincaid last night.  He also groomed the Lekisch 2.9 and the Stadium, all with fresh track.  Matt was out early this morning and cleaned up the Multi-Use, some of the smaller connectors and Elliot's, World Cup, Roller Coaster and Tasha's Turn.  He set new track throughout those trails.  Matt mentioned that it came out a little "washboardy" in a few places, but otherwise pretty nice.   Get it early!

**Hillside Update**
Tom was out last night waiting for the temperature to drop enough for him to take the cat out.  Once it did, he was able to groom and set new track on the Gas Line, the Multi-Use and the Richter.  He took the snow machine out and scuffed up the skate lanes on the Lighted Loops and Double Bubble.

Bill has no plans to get on the trails in Chugiak/Eagle River because the base has not cooled off or dried out enough for grooming.  The forecast for this next week has us above freezing everyday.   He'll watch the temperature and the base and as soon as he can make good skiing without damaging things, he will.
