Come one...come all...to the fun and family oriented race and community ski series on our Michigan Tech Trails this winter season! The idea is basic, to provide our greater community an opportunity to come enjoy our trails and the sport of skiing through a fun, family oriented participation based environment. The goal is simple, provide the opportunity for our Nordic community to come together to enjoy our sport and Nordic lifestyle in the Copper Country, and strengthen our community engagement with the MTU Nordic Ski Team!
Help KLT raise money to remove the fence at the Huron Bay Field Station by coming out to our 'This Land is Our Land' concert!

Learn more online or invite your friends to the Facebook event! Revenue from this event will be matched dollar-for-dollar through a challenge grant made by the Carls Foundation.
