Retro Ski Fest February 25 at Churning Rapids
Join the Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) and Keweenaw Land Trust (KLT) at Churning Rapids for some old-time skiing. On the afternoon of Saturday February 25th between noon and 3 pm, skiers will gather near the Lookout Landing Observation Tower along the #10 Thoroughfare Trail (see the Churning Rapids trail map). There will be a fire and chili to warm you and a lavvu will be set up (What’s a lavvu? check out lavvu.com).
Knickers, wool sweaters, wood skis and bamboo poles are not required but skiers are encouraged to use them if they have them. Skiing, too, will be the old way – breaking trail in the woods! Don’t let that discourage you, bring a friend or two – the more the merrier and less trail breaking to do! No fee but donations are appreciated and will be split evenly between the Keweenaw Cross Country Ski Endowment at the Keweenaw Community Foundation and KLT’s Land Stewardship Fund. A heads-up on numbers would be appreciated so there is enough chili for everyone. Please call Jay at 487-5411or email at email@example.com to let him know the number of skiers in your party.
