ANCHORAGE (AP) -- With a groomed trail system, snowmachine activities could be an economic boost to Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, bringing about $35.5 million a year to the area each year, according to a recent study.

Such a trail system would bring an estimated 12,000 additional visitors to the state annually, according to the study, which was conducted for the Anchorage Economic Development Corp. by students of the University of Alaska Anchorage. The study was completed in May.
