    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!

    all trails
    5K was groomed this morning, Moose Meadow and Upper Valley Loop roller compacted And 14 volunteers showed up to nip alders shovel snow and smooth out our connecting trails. Thanks to Volunteers: Jim Braham, Brian Burnett, Briana Sullivan, Marc Esslinger, Sharon Samuels, Jeff Samuels, Pieter Vonderhoek, Chad Burris, Mike Welch, Kate Sandberg, Peter Zug, Nick Georgeolos, Chris Urstadt and thanks to a random skier who stopped to side step a few rounds. All these folks spent about 2 1/2 hours working from Horror Hill thru the Enchanted Forest and Crockets bridge. We have our full trail system connected with good snow for the first time in 3 years! Go out and enjoy the trails and thank those hard working volunteers!

    Nordic Loop and upper meadows
    Well, we sure have the snow today. Maybe 2 feet at the upper snow stake on the 5K. Ethan and Peter went out early and were able to groom the two lower loops of the 5K. The snow on the upper loop has been track packed so the surface is rough but soft. These conditions make for excellent touring on both the 5K and in the meadows. Enjoy this opportunity! Jim
