Trail Report

  • 9/19/20 Help the winter groomers ! Pull alders on the trail Bed !

    Take a walk, run or ride on the 5 K and help us control weeds on the trail bed. Hardy friends have been helping us for years on this ongoing problem but we need your help now. Especially over the Corkscrew hill. ( 2.5-3.5 K ) Anything  growing in the trail bed needs to be pulled. Throw it off trail or just leave it on the trail so we can see how much work you have put in for your club. Go on out and enjoy fall on the 5 K  and pull an alder! Thanks in advance from the GNSC Groomers!...

  • Girdwood Marathon

    Gird your loins, it’s time for the Girdwood Marathon!! This is probably the only good news of 2020 so savor it. Choose the full 26.2 mile marathon or 13.1 mile half-marathon. The race starts and ends in the idyllic, forested village of Girdwood. The course takes you through town, along the Bird to Gird trail, into the mountains rich with autumn colors, and views of snow-dusted peaks. It’s probably going to rain or hail or both since it’s Girdwood, after all. Aid stations? No. This is a BYOBS race (Bring Your Own Bear Spray), along with water and a smile.   We will start the race in waves (COVID) and with waves. Covid says, “Race is limited to a maximum of 30 racers for the Marathon, maximum of 30 for the half.”  Thank you! October 3rd at 9am Meet at the Alyeska Daylodge. SIGN UP HERE...

  • Final Report for the 19/20 season Thursday 4/23/20

    Grooming is over for the season but the trails still have snow. Our warm and wet weather has made it difficult to improve conditions with grooming so we have gone into off season multi use status on the 5 K Loop.  Meadows are likely to have wet spots so ski and walk with caution until snow settles or melts. Thanks for the support and stay tuned for News about future developments. Stay hunkered and safe and take a ski run or two for the groomers. Thanks to all the volunteers who made it all happen. Kyle and Margaret were always there with a helping hand.  Most importantly we thank all of the Members and contributors to our volunteer driven Ski Club. Have a great spring and summer. We will see you on the trails!...

  • April 21, 2020

    The grooming season is just about a wrap.  We tried to smooth out the 5K Nordic Loop after we drove a snow machine around to pick up trail signs.  The snow is too soft to support a groom and I doubt if we’ll be back out again this season.  Thanks to all of the loyal GNSC members and other trail users who make our efforts worthwhile.  And a big thank you to all of the grooming volunteers and support folks....

  • 4/13/20 Monday New Snow!

    All trails got a onceover this morning. Some have new tracks too. Warmer temperatures and rain softened up surfaces then it got a few scant inches of new snow topping. Keep enjoying the snow while we have it. pz...
