Dan has had the Track groomer over the 3, 6, 8, Airstrip, and Inner Loops. Trail is smoothing out. You can hook in most areas. Some areas still too thin to hook large teams. Woodway is broken in and open. Dan has been over the 4 mile and Muldoon Swamp/Beaver Dam trails but both are still closed until we get enough snow to cover the rough areas. Dan will groom again on Friday.
In 1949 the Alaskan Sled Dog and Racing Association (ASDRA) was formed to promote and preserve the great Alaskan tradition of dog mushing.
The non-profit club puts on internationally recognized races from January 1 through the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous in February of each year. Race fees and trail fees are used to maintain the club trailhead facilities and groom the trails in Far North Bicentennial Park. The 20 miles of trail known as Tozier Track begins and ends at a 10-acre trailhead site owned by ASDRA.
A strong junior mushing program provides education and winter recreation for mushers from 4 to 17 years. Members sponsor events sharing their sport with the community and tourists.
