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.

HILLSIDE:  Tom says the grooming days are numbered on the Hillside.  He took the snow cat out this morning and made a sweep on the Lighted Loops, Richter, Gas Line, Double Bubble, and the Spencer.  He said there are more and more puddles and areas of exposed dirt...but nothing you can't ski around.  He did go down the Tour trail, one last time, to the Campbell Creek Bridge and back.  It's just getting too thin, slushy, icy, and dirty for him to continue his grooming efforts on that trail.  Today was his last day on Randy's Loop, Service Stadium and the Multi-Use where the upper end is pretty muddy and dirty.   He said Matt may dress the trails up tomorrow morning, however, Tom will be back on Monday to assess the trail conditions.  In the meantime, enjoy the skiing while it lasts and have a great weekend!
