This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Denali Nordic Ski Club,Inc. This iteration followed the Talkeetna Nordic Ski Club which was just a bunch of skiers with no formal structure. We became a 501(C) (3) in order to get grants to build the Ski Hill Nordic Trail. So, this also marks the 20th anniversary of the Ski Hill trails! I propose we celebrate this with a Sven & Olie Race at Ski Hill on Saturday, December 5th. Anyone interested? ... See MoreSee Less

Xy looks like 2 inches fresh atop soft but somewhat packed grooming. No tracks set. Snowshoe tracks heading toward the hiking trail.
I'm gonna skate ski the ski loops.

Ice Skating Report: Because I was on my Nordic skates I'll sneak this report in on this page. Christiansen Lake has good ice on it. Close to shore the ice was up to five inches, as reported by the ice fishermen who were out there. Farther out it only froze a couple of days ago and looks to be about two inches, so use caution. This afternoon it was very cold, but beautiful with the hoar frost. ... See MoreSee Less

I had a great time at last night's Ski Club Annual Meeting. It was fantastic seeing so many local skiers of all ages and ability levels turn out to see what their club is up to, talk about skiing, trails, and touch base with one another. I am sure the atmosphere got some folks charged up for the season because I counted 12 cars at the Talkeetna Lakes parking lot today. And the skiing was great! ... See MoreSee Less
