    Donations in memory of Doug Knutson

    Doug was supportive of the Nordic Clubs in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Girdwood. He passed away peacefully last year.  In lieu of flowers, Doug's Family has suggested donations towards a necessary bridge replacement along the xc trails here in Girdwood.  To donate you can send a check (PO Box 337, Girdwood AK 99587) or go to the page: and click BOTH "Funds" and "Other" to input both amount and the text "Doug's Bridge".  We are honored.  Thank you Donna and Family for your continued support!

    5 K nordic Loop
    After around 4 inches of rain over the past few days we have to wait to see what Mother Nature has in store for us. Please do not use the Nordic 5 K trail in any mode. If we stay off the trail with all traffic when it snows again we could have a better surface to start over with. Thanks for the support. It will snow soon. Happy Thanksgiving. pz

    5K nordic Loop
    Chuck went out and put down the first corduroy of the year. Still really thin so ski with appropriate caution. Winter grooming has REALLY begun. Help keep the groom nice on your local trail. Reminder: Ski Only. Remind walkers and bikers to find other areas to have fun in. Happy Thanksgiving. pz
