    Donations in memory of Doug Knutson

    We are saddened by the news of Doug Knutson.  Doug was supportive of the Nordic Clubs in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Girdwood. He passed away peacefully on Friday, August 29th.  In lieu of flowers, Doug's Family has suggested donations towards a necessary bridge replacement along the xc trails here in Girdwood.  To donate you can send a check (PO Box 337, Girdwood AK 99587) or go to the page: and click BOTH "Funds" and "Other" to input both amount and the text "Doug's Bridge".  We are honored.  Thank you Donna and Family for your continued support!

    Nordic Loop
    We groomed and created 1/2" dust on crust that should set up nicely tonight. We groomed the 1K cut-off as well. We also kicked up a few more rocks with the cutters 1" in the snow. There is about 20 off them looking like Easter eggs along the trail. Please throw them off if you see any. We will groom again Friday late or early Sat morning after the predicted snow.

    Nordic Loop
    The Loop has been packed and groomed today! Enjoy. There is a 4" base so a few rocks are showing through in the last 1.5 Kilometer. They are all small spots and avoidable, but you may want rock-skis just to be safe. None of the meadows will be groomed until we receive about 8 more inches of snow. Thank you Tim, Chuck, Brian, and Keith. There is smooth corduroy to enjoy! If you see a rock - throw it off trail. Cheers!
