Have you noticed that Birch Hills trails are not being groomed as often? Donations are not keeping pace with expenses. The club has had to cut expenses, which means less grooming. If you want more grooming, please donate. And encourage others to do so, too.

Donating to the Birch Hill Trails Fund is easy. Just click here. If that doesn’t work, go to the NSCF home page (www.nscfairbanks.org) and then to the “Support NSCF” dropdown menu. From there click on “Birch Hill Trail Fund.”

And thank you to all our donors so far!

Facts about ski trails at Birch Hill:
* The Ski Club pays for all trail grooming NOT the borough.
* Our ski season is weeks to months longer than most places.
* The annual cost of the trail program is about $100,000 a year. This includes: labor, fuel, and equipment maintenance and replacement.
* Grooming is paid for entirely by donations

Also, is your membership for the ski club current? Your membership helps keep trail grooming and all our other programs running. To join or renew click here or go the “Membership” dropdown menu on the NSCF home page.

Enjoy the trails!
