RECENT TRAIL REPORTS

  • Monday, Mar 16th
    Afternoon
    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.
  • Sunday, Mar 1st
    Afternoon
    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.
