Repair equipment to affect UAF ski trail

Marmian Grimes

Wind during the recent winter storm caused damage to some power lines along a portion of the University of Alaska Fairbanks ski trails.

The trail affected runs from near the western end of the trail near the satellite dishes to the Potato Field. Equipment will be in the area Friday evening and into the weekend to repair the damaged electrical lines.

Skiers in the area should watch for signs and use alternate trail routes to avoid the areas where equipment is present.
