Do you love spring skiing? Do you love the Sonot Kkaazoot? If you love either or both, please consider donating to the Birch Hill Trail Fund!
The do-it-yourself Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot is happening now! You have options of 10, 30 and 50 kilometers. Speed doesn’t matter to us, we just want to give you the opportunity to join in the fun. Read about the details here.
Even if you aren’t participating in the Sonot, March and April offer some of the best skiing of the year. But without good grooming the trails can become rough, the tracks washed out. The ski club wants to keep grooming, but we need your help. The club pays for ALL trail grooming and NEEDS your donations to continue grooming. If you’re ready to donate, 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.”
