    Donations in memory of Doug Knutson

    Doug was supportive of the Nordic Clubs in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Girdwood. He passed away peacefully last year.  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
    Chris Urstadt groomed the Nordic Loop in chilly temperatures today. Nice corduroy, but no set classic tracks. The snow is still too thin for tracks. Please watch for rocks on the trail. Stay warm out there. Jim

    Girdwood Nordic Loop
    Thanks to Tim Charnon and Justin Thomas for the first grooms of the year on the Nordic Loop. The snow is light, soft and pretty thin but should make for excellent cross country skiing. Watch for rocks - volunteers removed as many as they could over the past couple of days but there are still some lurking in the snow. Jim
