The Alaska Outdoor Reports website is a community of outdoor enthusiasts who share information about the areas where they recreate. Thank you very much to everyone who takes the time to post reports. You are what makes this site so great!
The Alaska Outdoor Reports are developed and maintained by Cory Smith, out of his desire to always know where the best skiing is. Special thanks to Resource Data, Inc. for contributing to this project.
If you have any questions, or are interested in having the Reports on your website, check our admittedly meager help section for more information and/or contact info.
Thanks for visiting!
By using this website and the information it contains, you acknowledge all of the following:
Reports in this forum are the opinion of the reporter only. They are opinions only, and should not be construed as fact or professional assesment. The information may be inaccurate. Reports are not the views of this organization, the website owner, or the forum moderator(s). These reports are intended to supplement your existing knowledge of the area being reported, and the outdoors in general. The reports are not comprehensive. Hazards will undoubtably exist that are not documented here. These reports should not be your only source of information. The reports are simply one more piece of information to help you make better decisions in the outdoors. Those decisions are still yours alone.
Have fun and be safe!
In pursuit of our mission to provide a state-wide platform for all trail conditions, and to support the grooming efforts of the clubs that make those trails possible, we are excited to now include automated grooming reports provided by the Municipality of Anchorage's (MOA) Nordic Grooming Map.
When MOA, NSAA, or Girdwood NSC update the grooming status on the MOA Map, it is automatically displayed here as well, thanks to our "Friendly Trail Bot". Each new grooming update is displayed as a text report, similar to our usual user reports, including the names of the trails groomed as well as any groomer comments. The groomed trails are also displayed on the map, color-coded based on how long ago they were groomed.
This is a new feature, and we'd love to get your feedback on how we can improve it. Please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org And, of course, we still want to see all of your first-hand reports posted here as well!
Thank you to the Municipality of Anchorage, Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage, and Girdwood Nordic Ski Club for making this possible! Please support these clubs' grooming efforts!
If you'd like to get your local club's grooming updates on this site (automated or otherwise), please get in touch. We'd love to make it happen!
