Hey skiers, we are watching the peaks for inspiration dust! Summer lovers call it termination dust but we know better. We are already accepting memberships for the 2019-2020 ski season! Good news, the endowment that we created last season is already off to a great start. We have already raised $20,000 toward our $100,000 goal. Learn more about it and/or donate here. We now have a direct link to the Juneau Community Foundation JNSC Endowment page where you have the option of donating monthly or one-time via credit card or PayPal.
Mark your calendars, December 5th will be the annual potluck and gear swap at Dzantik’l Heeni Middle School 6-8 PM.
Watch for news about trail volunteer opportunities.

Spring thaw is here. Dog owners please ‘catch-up’ on poop patrol on Montana Creek. Also if you see Grateful Dogs doing a clean up, thank them for their efforts. Get out and ski while we still can!
Our 4th annual Border 2 Border Ski Event, inspired by a 500KM classic ski event across Finland, will be held ONCE AGAIN this Saturday March 9th, concluding at Eagle Beach State Park. This is NOT a race but a chance to enjoy all of our groomed ski trails on the same day!
We start (with the Finnish Flag, and a bib to log your kilometers) at the North Douglas Pioneer Road, move to Eaglecrest Lower Loop parking lot and move along to the Mendenhall Campground and lake, Montana Creek and will finish at Eagle Beach State Park. There will be Finnish-themed snacks and drinks at each trail.
Here’s the B2B schedule:
North Douglas Pioneer Road: 8:00-9:30
Eaglecrest Lower and Upper Loops: 9:30-11:30 (Bring your Eaglecrest Nordic Pass and park in the lower loop lot)
Montana Creek: 2:30-3:30
Eagle Beach State Park: 4-5 with BBQ, fire, and PRIZES to follow after 5PM.
