Alaska Outdoor Reports http://www.snowio.com User-submitted reports on outdoor conditions around the state of Alaska. en-us http://www.snowio.com/#report/25251 Archangel Road Feb 23 12PM: Classic and skate grooming here at AA also. A snowmachine rallied down the middle of the trail and left a rut that the groomer was unable to totally remove. This place should be good views and good skiing regardless this setback

http://www.snowio.com/#report/25255 Portage Lake Feb 23 10AM: The lake was half frozen with clear ice at 10 am. Air temp at the Portage Lake parking lot was 2 degrees at 7 am and warmed to 11 degrees at 10 am. The lake looks to be glazing over at night...looking at the FAA webcam at 4:30 pm, it looks like it's back to open water after absorbing heat from the sun.

Excellent conditions. We also did 1 lap on the Denali, Arkose, and Marmot loops for skate and classic. Pretty much all the trails in the valley are good for skiing right now and the weather is perfect.

http://www.snowio.com/#report/25249 Archangel Road Feb 22 11PM: Mat-Su Ski Club groomed the skate lane and set tracks on Archangel Road from the trailhead to the bridge. Groomed for snow machines beyond the bridge. Skate lane is a little uneven and cobbled in places on the non-motorized section due to illicit snow machine activity.

As noted, dogs are running on upper Chester Ck trail each afternoon and they run over that with snow machines following the race. MOA sidewalk clearing machine blew snow, ice, and dirt on the trail at the Bragaw bus stop. Main trails are multiuse packed but "stadiums" at Russian Jack are mostly fresh snow with occasional tracks.

Got to MLK about 3pm. Watch the usual dog crossings. The dog races are Fri, Sat, Sun starting at noon downtown i think, and were well done by the time I got to MLK. From MLK the dogs are using the trail across the Elmore bridge back over to the Chester creek trail. They are knocking it back down with snowmachines after the dogs are done, classic tracks were filled in in places, skating was a bit punchy and rough in places. I turned back at the bridge over to Russian Jack but likely the same down Chester until the dogs get off to downtown. Elmore bridge needs more snow, passable but watch your pole tips on the pavement showing through.

Denali Nordic Ski Club has everything groomed after 10" of new snow early in the week-Fish Lake is groomed skate and classic, Ski Hill Skate only, and the Glacial Erratic, Heart Lake and Inlet Lake system are groomed for multi-use. Lots of moose around, pay attention.
