14 Nov We have begun Grooming! Saturday 11/14/2020

On Sunday you will be able to go out and ski a thin but otherwise great ski surface on the 5 K. Our groomers will be out early to finish off work that Ben Kohler did today! Its early season conditions so watch out for thin spots especially on the lower sections of trail. We have minimal amount of snow out there so caution is advised always. Don't forget to Join and support GNSC and your local groomers. We will be out there for you and look forward to giving you the best surface possible. All other trails are in need of significant snow before we can start working on them. Luckily the 5K Nordic loop can open on minimal snow so go out and enjoy it! If you are interested in helping get things going contact Peter @ 317-8386    ...

01 Nov Become a 314er! Save the UAA Ski Team

Help save the UAA ski team!  Click here to learn and donate: What is a 314er ? SAVE the UAA Ski Team On September 10, 2020, UA Regents voted to eliminate more than half the funding for the UAA ski team, and discontinue Alpine skiing events. To save our sport, preserve the Alpine events, and field a complete team, the UA Regents and UAA Chancellor are asking us to raise two years of operating costs. A total of $628,000 dollars. Exactly half, $314,000 of the total, needs to be delivered in cash.  The second $314K can be in pledges. We can achieve this.  Become a 314er today and support a Whole UAA Ski Team. NCAA college skiing is in trouble. Lost programs at New Mexico, Nevada, Whitman, Western State College, Brown, and others are the sad reality of institutions successfully amputating Olympic sports. The UAA Chancellor and the UA Board of Regents gutted the UAA ski team’s budget, offering to keep a Nordic-only grouping that can never be competitive in its quest for a National Championship. UAA is now the canary in the coal mine. One domino left teetering, and our toppling could take down the entire Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association. Once the RMISA is gone, the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association is soon to follow. If you care about collegiate Olympic sports, Skiing in particular, you need to care about saving the UAA Ski Team. There is hope. We have a pathway forward, and we need your help. To save our sport, and add Alpine back to our team, the UA Regents and UAA Chancellor are asking us to raise two years of operating costs. A total of $628,000 dollars by Feb 1st, 2021. Exactly half, $314,000 of the total, needs to be delivered in cash. The second $314K can be in pledges. It’s a steep hill to climb, but together we can do this. Our ski racing community is strong, resolved, and stands together in solidarity for all of our programs. We are a sport like no other, and we have an opportunity to be better. By saving the UAA Ski Team, we are turning the tide. We show that institutions cannot cut or gut programs. DONATE TODAY...

It's chilly outside! Are you ready for winter? GNSC volunteers are: We're ensuring our trails are clear for snowpack, equipment is set to groom, and the skis are waxed. GNSC is fundraising for a Narrow Gauge Groomer!   Did you know? We're collaborating with local trail steward Ben Kohler, the brain behind a new Snow Dog trail groomer. Utilizing this machine will make our small trails in Girdwood ideal for classic skiing, walking, and biking.
