    Donations in memory 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!

    Girdwood Valley, 5K loop
    Continued rain w/ no snow of any substance forecasted. Cooler weather may be inching in closer to Thanksgiving. 5 K loop is bare ground again but we will start grooming as soon as it turns white. A wise man in Girdwood often says" Winter Happens" ... patience Grasshopper.pz

    Nordic Loop
    Chuck groomed at 7am to smooth out the 5K before the UAA, and APU Nordic teams came to race. That was the last groom. It has been raining since, I assume we have lost most of the snow on the trail.
