Becoming a better skier

Fischer Skate Skis (for kids) 140cm, side cut 51/47/50 with Salomon SNS pilot bindings. I am just trying to get my money back on these. Bought the skis new last spring and put new bindings on them last week. Used once. ... See MoreSee Less

Mark of the park report for 2/23/17
Took the big groomer out Tuesday and did the ski trails. Set some nice track there also. Today I groomed all the lakes and set track on X lake. Lakes are a little soft. But, the ski trails are great. Russ will be working Saturday to groom for the weekend. If we get snow Sat. That will be 7 out of 8 weekends with snow on the weekends.
See you out there. :-)

Groomed the ridge trail and Whiskey slew Trail too Inter-Tie on Sunday. Took all the chatter bumps out and it's as smooth as butter. Biked from end of Comsat to whiskey slew trail to Larson creek trail and back. It's about 12 miles and very hard and fast. Get out their and enjoy the trails before the snow flies. Also groomed the little cat track at the end of cristian lake. ... See MoreSee Less

An American Ascent: Talkeetna

February 21, 2017, 6:30pm

Sheldon Community Arts Hangar, 22249 South D. Street

You are cordially invited to watch a free movie and, if you like, talk about it afterwards with a park ranger. As an outreach highlight of Denali’s 100th Birthday Celebrations this week, the park will host a free public screening of "An American Ascent" in Talkeetna at 6:30 pm Tues Feb 21, Sheldon Community Arts Hangar, 22249 South D. Street After the one-hour film, attendees are invited to join a ranger-led discussion. Narrated by Shelton Johnson, the acclaimed 2015 film sheds light on the complex relationship that minority populations often have with wild places. The documentary follows nine African-American climbers on a grueling expedition on Denali as they seek to build a legacy and encourage inner city kids and people of color to get outside.

Elementary School trails and field groomed. Tracks set on trails.
Some brush has been encroaching on these trails and if anyone feels so inclined they could benefit from some clipping.

Corinne SmithSomeone dropped a gray over-mitt on the ridge between Fish Lake and Pilgrim's Pond. We strapped it to a shrub branch on the inside curve where the trail turns almost 180.
