Cold but groomed

Trails have been packed and groomed...get out and enjoy the conditions while you can. Also, check out our new Trail Sign; located to your right as you pass the "check-in station". Many thanks to the Seward Ranger District Staff , Chugach National Forest, for donating the sign as well as the time and effort in preparing the signage. Thanks again!!!

Just groomed...Yea!!!

Just groomed all trails, plus the new trail, and have set a track. Skiing should be good. There's some debris on trails due to the winds; other than that, should be good skate and classical skiing. Get out there!!!

Packed sticky snow

Just rolled and packed the road to Grayling, all campground loops and the "new trail". As of 3pm, snow is sticky, use warm wax. Temp's are going to drop this week which should make for some faster skiing. Please walk/snow shoe to the sides of the groomed areas and please clean-up after your dogs. "Brown clister" is tough on the equipment. Thanks!!!

Just Packed and groomed

Hey skiers: Just packed the road to Grayling as well as the five campground loops. The new "trail", go to the left of the main gate, go up to another gate and take the left trail, has been packed. Its about 5k round trip with gentle uphills. I'll keep packing until we get a good base then start using the groomer.

First 2011 Grooming Report

Welcome skiers! After our first snow fall of the season, we got the grooming equipment staged over to the RRCG, we started rolling and packing the road all the way into Grayling Parking lot. We haven't packed all the campground loops yet as the gates are locked. We'll get them opened shortly. Also, we're grooming a "new" trail. Before you get to the main gate to the campground, there is another road to your left. Follow this up to another gate and you'll see a groomed road to your left. This old logging road goes for a mile and dead-ends above Gwinn's Lodge. Nice gentle hills; adequate for both classical and skate skiing. We've also got 2 new groomers, Natalia A. and Katie F.; thanks to both of the them. Enjoys the conditions; more snow would help!!
