Nordic Night Skiing Takes Its Next Step:

first light poles for lighted night skiing arrive

Special delivery! The first 3 light poles for XC night skiing are here. We’ll be testing out these 40ft. poles this season to see how they do in the epic Sierra snowfall. Next year, when we put a bunch of these out on the trails, you (your family or business) will be able to sponsor your very own light pole with a plaque and contribute to a lasting legacy to provide athletes access to snow sports.


ASC is in the planning stages to install high intensity LED lighting on 2.5km of XC trail with plans for another 3km in the future. . For this season ASC will be lighting 1.5km of trail with temporary lights for 4 weeks beginning mid-December.  Regular trail passes will be good for night skiing this season. 

Calling for SNS combi boot donations:

By Gus Johnson 10/21/2021, 1:45pm PDT

Due to the ongoing supply chain management issues, ASC will likely be waiting on the order we placed in April 2021 for combi boots for our junior program rentals in the Sonics program. We have a small stock of skis from our old inventory we'll be using to supply our returning families in the Sonics program, but are asking for donations of SNS binding combi-boots to help us fill in the gaps and match kids with appropriately fitting gear. Check your garage and help us get more kids on snow.


SNS system boots are being phased out, so now's a great time to support the program until we get our new NNN/Prolink order.


The sliders program equipment is fully stocked and can accommodate the program signups.
