  • Dam

    GNSC members and volunteers cleared a dam this week that already damaged the trail and bridge connections behind Our Lady of the Snows Church. Fortunately, the dam was released after a few hours of labor and the bridge held. Please keep an eye on our local trails and let us know if more damming is taking place! We maintain our trails year-round and appreciate our volunteers....

  • 4/15/21 Groomed 5 K and Upper Meadow Loop

    John got out tonight to groom it up. Reported to be a good groom as usual on 5K and Upper Valley Loop. Last nights precip has puddled the Moose Meadow in the usual spots.

  • Friday March 26, 2021

    Spring is springing but the snow keeps coming! Yesterday added a few inches of snow to the trails so Riley and John groomed all of the main Girdwood Nordic and Multi-Use trails this morning, with classic tracks set. With these longer, sunnier days, the conditions are softening up so don’t be surprised to see grooming equipment out again a couple more times this weekend.    ...

  • Friday, March 19, 2021

    Kyle and Jim groomed a very cold surface this morning.  As a result, the groomed surfaces are pretty fuzzy – which can make for a fun skating surface.  New classic tracks were set on most of the trails, except for the Arlberg bike path.  It’s kind of cool out there, so when you go for a ski on the awesome trails, make sure to wear your woolies....
