Trails open on west side of Campbell Airstrip. Low snow pack. Rough in spots. Trail has gotten hard and fast over the past few days. Watch for overflow nears the second Elmore underpass coming home.
“Over the Mountain” trail is closed off. There are very rough areas and no snow in the culverts.
2.3 mile, 6 mile, 8 mile and Airstrip will open on Monday morning. Do not go unless you know where you are going. Use caution, run small teams and expect marginal hooking. Expect rough trail in the usual areas for low snow years. There will be volunteers out moving the signage and pannels for turns. Dan will continue to groom. Inner loop and Woodway have only had one groom so far. Homecoming has only had the small groomer over it.
Big thank you to all the volunteers out today! Susan S., Marilla, Janet, Scott, Nick, Steve, Jerry, Kathy F, Fran, Christine, Kris, Dan & John. A lot of snow was moved!
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.
