  1. Cuddy Park

      [Anchorage] - 9:00 PM, Thu Dec 18, 2014 by Chuck

    Midtown park skating Oval. Hot mopped today. In great shape for Soltice Skate party tomorrow evening.
  2. Kincaid Park

      [Anchorage] - 4:00 PM, Thu Dec 18, 2014 by Adam Verrier

    We skied classic around a majority of the park today but the best skiing at Kincaid would be skating on the Lekisch 7.5. It's groomed for skating but has had very little traffic, so it's pretty good.

    anyone knows how Westchester lagoon is being hot mopped? IS it possible to skate there ?
  4. Westchester Lagoon

      [Anchorage] - 3:00 PM, Thu Dec 18, 2014 by Malinak

    The lagoon looks like it is in great skating shape. The muni was still out there hot mopping about an hour ago (3:45 pm). Lots of skaters, bikers, skiers, walkers, dogs out there enjoying the sunset. Including a busload of school kids and West High Nordic team.

    Skating is excellent. Enjoy!

    Re-groomed all trails at Independence Mine. 2 inches new snow in the past 24 hrs. Clear skies and cool weather (20F) should let trails set up nicely overnight.

    Very good ice. It was mopped on Tues and was very good for races last nite. Will likely be done again tomorrow. Should be in great shape for the Solstice Skate party friday @ 6 PM.
  8. Kincaid

      [Anchorage] - 8:00 PM, Wed Dec 17, 2014 by Ryan and Erin

    Skated multi-use, snow-making loop and mize. Multi-use was pretty good. Snow making loop not as good and mize was like skiing on an old, hard, white frosting.
  9. UAF, Birch Hill

      [Fairbanks] - 4:00 PM, Wed Dec 17, 2014 by Lisa

    Come to Fairbanks for the Ski Your Age the day after Christmas and ski all our great and I might add very snowy trails. Lighted trails at both UAF and Birch Hill packed and tracked.

    Skiing at Hillside is good, especially the lighted loops. Downhills on Double Bubble and Spencer Loop 'sporty,' as an earlier poster said. Scraped down, and on Double Bubble rocky. Overall, however, amazingly good considering the weather.
  11. Independence Mine/Archangel Rd/GPRA

      [Mat-Su] - 10:00 PM, Tue Dec 16, 2014 by Ed Strabel

    Ind mine will be regroomed Wed night. Gene Backus packed Archangel Rd to the bridge Tuesday and will pack the road up to the gate Wed. No tracks, but should be OK for skating. Light dusting of snow at GPRA but not enough to groom. Pioneer loop and the new mountain bike trails are open(skiing not recommended). Please stay off the Matanuska and Susitna loops and the stadium area.

    Great skiing at Hillside, due to the expert grooming by Tom. Even I was able to skate with confidence in avoiding icy spots. Fast and smooth skiing! Thanks, Tom! Keep up the good work and we're all praying with you for new snow. Reno Deprey
  14. Kincaid Park

      [Anchorage] - 2:00 PM, Mon Dec 15, 2014 by red8wop

    Mize loop skiable especially the outer loop. A bit scritchy. A snow machine drag would improve things.
    Sisson had coverage but not groomed

      [Mat-Su] - 11:00 PM, Sun Dec 14, 2014 by Ed Strabel

    All loops regroomed for classic and skating. Trails are solid and fast. Temperature is staying below freezing, (for now).

    Headed out this weekend with very low expectations and was blown away by the condition of the trails. Jr. Nordic and Randy's loops are in near perfect condition. Other loops are in good condition, just watch out for ruts at the bottoms of hills. Don't let the weather get you down - Get out there!

    It was amazing out there today. The best snow conditions I've experienced this year. Would've been better a little more packed down, poles dug in deep sometimes, but still a 9/10. Gorgeous weather, lots of classic, skate and backcountry users, and just one of those perfect days to ski. Thanks to groomers and fellow skiiers alike.

    I just skated at the oval, and it had been hot mopped since yesterday afternoon, and was in much, much better shape. There are no deep chips or holes in the ice, which were there yesterday. There's a bit of roughness on both corners, but the straightaways are in pretty great shape. It was a gorgeous evening - no wind, beautiful lights around the park - get out there!
