Found a sporty pair of sunglasses lying in the middle of the skate track on Mendenhall Lake this morning. Call 209-94fivesix to claim them.
4 km of lower loop groomed for skate and classic, including the meadow loop. Upper loop also groomed for skate and classic, access via Trickster. Enjoy pure nordic skiing at Eaglecrest, the only trails in Juneau restricted to skiers only! Ask the Snowsports School about skate or classic ski lessons – the nordic instructors are ready to go!
Montana Creek is ready to go-everyone will be on the lake so come on out!
Dr. Dave says Upper Loop set for skate and classic. Access uphill through Trickster run. Groomed past Black Bear to the bottom of lower Hilda. Soft when set, probably holding well now. Time to add some hills to your routine!
Mendenhall Lake was rolled and then groomed in a 5K loop for both classic and skate (two lanes wide each) Friday midday and again late last night. Track should be in great shape after an all night set. Groomers will be disappointed and down if skiers are not out there in large numbers during this beautiful, clear and sunny weather! It should warm up for comfortable skiing by late morning! See you out there!
Eagle Beach was groomed late Friday evening for skate and classic. Conditions are very good / excellent, with soft, new snow and good coverage everywhere.
The Juneau Nordic Ski Team and Club are hosting a community skiathalon race Saturday, February 9th, at 12PM (noon), Pioneer Road Trail.
A skiathalon is an event where skiers start on classic skis and then transition to skate skis half way through the race. It is loads of fun and a great way to challenge yourself with both techniques. Race distance options will be between 5 and 15 km depending on how much you want to ski. You should show up at least a half hour early, recommended 11:15am, to stage your skis in the transition zone and to tell the organizer you wish to compete 🙂
All are welcome and encouraged to come out and ski for fun or race!
If you’re trying to avoid large crowds then avoid Pioneer Rd skiing between the hours of 11am-1:30pm 😉
