  • 2017 Girdwood Trails Marathon Race Results

    The 2nd annual Girdwood Trail Marathon was contested under clear skies and run over 26 miles of Girdwood’s spectacular trail system. This is the only looped trail marathon in Alaska, The race route covers trails managed by Girdwood Nordic Ski Club, Girdwood Park & Rec, Chugach State Park, U.S. Forest Service, Girdwood School and Alyeska Resort. All the proceeds of this run go back to the groups that maintain and build Girdwood trails. The men’s race was won by Alaska back country legend Miles Raney. He bested Matias Saari (2016 winner) and Soren Weurth. The Women’s field was won by APU skier Lauren Fritz, she topped Julie Johnson and Rachel Steer for her first win in Girdwood. Volunteers from Girdwood Nordic Ski Club and the Girdwood Trails Committee made this event happen! See full results here

  • Nordic Loop Closure

    The Nordic Loop will be closed at the 4K cutoff tomorrow as we remove a few trees downed in the last storm. Impressive willawaw. We named her Irmawilla!!

  • Afternoon 5K Nordic Trail

    The 5K Nordic Loop will not be groomed again this season. Due to lack of snow and construction on the Arlberg Extension – which makes groomer and skier access to the trail extremely difficult, we are suspending grooming operations. When we get another good weather window of a week or so, we’ll groom a loop at Turnagain Pass.
