Bunches of new snow.  No grooming was done today because of a number of fallen trees.  We spent most of the day trying to clear that up, but there is at least one tree down across the trail.  PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN IN THE GIRDWOOD FOREST.  HEAVY SNOW LOAD, RAIN SATURATED SOIL WHICH IS NOT FROZEN, AGING HEMLOCK TREES.  BE VIGILANT WHEN ON THE TRAIL; TREES CAN FALL ON YOU.  LETS BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!...

12 Dec Wednesday 12/12/18 5 K is BACK !

After more than a foot of snow over the last few days, Jim and Peter groomed around 6 hours between them today to get a pretty nice groom. Some alder on Corkscrew area and overall snow is soft but quite skiable. As always, ski with caution and have fun!  Welcome back to winter! Other trails still need to drain last weeks water and gain another 2 feet of snow. Stay tuned....

After about an 8 inch accumulation of snow and some cool temperatures overnight, the 5K Nordic Loop was rolled today.  Most folks venturing out on the trail are using touring skis - good idea, because there are still a lot of rocks.  As always, use caution on the downhills.  Dogs are ok until our next "groom" - probably Friday.  Have fun out there!...

23 Apr 4/23/18 Monday – 5K is all that is skiable. Looks like no more grooming

All trails except 5K are melted out and no longer skiable. 5K is still covered and skiable but grooming is unlikely. Bare spots exist so ski with caution on all parts of the trail. At one time we had as much as 2 1/2 feet on our snow stakes and now we are melted down to @ 6-8 inches.. It was great while it lasted but it is going fast. Thanks for your support. Thanks to all our volunteer Groomers and supporting members....
