    Donations in memory of Doug Knutson

    Doug was supportive of the Nordic Clubs in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Girdwood. He passed away peacefully on Friday, August 29th.  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!

    5K Nordic Loop
    With heavy snows predicted in the Girdwood valley, groomers were ready to get back at it this morning. Unfortunately, very little snow fell in the valley - although at elevation there was quite a dump. The Nordic Loop is still not groomable, but with cooler temps and continued precipitation, we may be able to ski again before Summer.

    5K Nordic Loop
    Despite the fact that there's almost no snow on the 5K Nordic Loop, it's still quite good for outdoor recreation. Biking, running, hiking. Enjoy it now - when the big dump comes, we'll resume grooming and we'll be skiing again.
