If you like skiing on the nicely groomed trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area, then show your thankfulness with a donation to the Trails Fund.

We’ve been blessed with early and abundant snow and the skiing has been great at Birch Hill! And why is that? Because the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks, with your help, takes great care of the trails at Birch Hill Recreation Area. We couldn’t do this without support.

The Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks does ALL the grooming at Birch Hill—more than 50 kilometers of trails. That grooming is paid for entirely through donations. Many people have already donated. If you haven’t donated yet, please do so. We’ve made things easier for you. You can sign up for one of our renewing donation options: monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually.

GROOMING EXPENSES ADD UP
Our ski season is weeks to months longer than most places Outside. Program costs include labor, fuel, and equipment maintenance and replacement. The club NEEDS your donations to continue grooming

THE BOROUGH DOES NOT GROOM THE TRAILS
Some people are under the impression that the Fairbanks borough pays for trail grooming. The borough does provide our great buildings and other services, such as parking lot plowing. But the ski club pays for ALL trail grooming.
