We are well into the summer season and the groomers are as busy as ever. With all the rain and sunshine the vegetation is really taking off and the crew is doing their best to keep up. Bill, Annette and Tim have been cutting brush on the trails at Bartlett. It’s essential to trim those alders back as far as possible so they don’t encroach on the trails when they are heavy with snow in the winter. Check out these before and after shots!
Bill does most of the cutting using his “modified” weed trimmer (with a humble nod to Tim Taylor) and a chainsaw while Annette and Tim drag the brush away. It’s hot and dirty work and fortunately there aren’t many mosquitoes…thank goodness!!
At Kincaid, Craig and Jack are making every effort to keep the grass from taking over. They have mowed the Sisson, Mize, Lekisch Lighted, Margaux’s, Jodhpur and Elliot’s, so far, and are really happy to have the right equipment for the job, pass after pass.
We sure hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Alaskan summer. Stay healthy and we’ll keep you posted!

A brief summary of our snowmaking efforts earlier in the week. We started making snow on Monday at 7:00 AM and stopped on Wednesday at 10:00 AM for a total of 51 hours straight. We used just over 0.5 million gallons of water. Then the rain and wind came. I watched all the action on the NSAA webcam. I went out to Kincaid today to see what’s left. I was surprised. We did lose snow but you can see from the attached pictures that the lower tunnel looks fine and that there still are some snow piles (much smaller than on Wednesday) in the stadium near the Lekisch tunnel and at the north end of the stadium. The lance loop (north of Raspberry – where we focused our efforts) doesn’t look all that bad – there are still snow piles under all the lances – perhaps this area was somewhat sheltered from the wind and the rain.
