OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly Southeast Alaska may not have an average January’s worth of snow, but Gastineau Elementary School and Juneau Charter School students still managed their traditional Nordic skiing field trips.

Skis, poles, hot chocolate, snacks, transportation, technique, safety, falling mittens, snow levels: There’s a lot to consider when taking groups of elementary and middle school students cross country skiing.

Here, a trio of students glide down the track on Montana Creek Road last week. Page 10.
