Candle Luminary Ski & Chili Cook-off – Dec. 26, 2017

Posted on

Join the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club on the evening of Tuesday December 26 for the annual Candle Luminary Ski, starting from Hancock’s Four Seasons Chalet by the county fairgrounds at 6 pm. Enjoy a  candle lit evening to celebrate the holidays with family and friends on the Maasto Hiihto ski trails. And, check out our new addition this year – the first annual Chili Cook-off!

Starting from Hancock’s Four Seasons Chalet at the north end of the Houghton County Fairgrounds, 1 and 2 kilometer loops will be aglow with luminaria from 6-8 pm.  This fun, free event is for the whole family, including the kids whether they are on skis or in pulks. Don’t leave the 4-legged family members home! Everyone is welcome at Maasto. For folks who don’t ski, you may snow shoe or snow bike. Afterwards, head to the Chalet for the Chili Cook off, hot dog and brat roasting, holiday goodies and good cheer.  A good time will be had by all!
