Ski the Past: XC Ski and Historic Trade Route Adventure

Event Date: 
Saturday, February 25, 2017 - 10:00

*** Program Description***

Join us for a day of XC skiing and cultural exploration at the 25 mile XC ski track!

We will re-create a traditional Tlingit trade and travel route to the interior.  Local history enthusiast Lee Heinmiller will share insight into various types of snow shoes and historic winter travel methods. Through a scavenger hunt style game we will “visit” significant points along our scaled down trail and discover keys to winter travel and from past to present.  All skill levels welcome! Instruction for beginners and folks looking to refresh the basics.

Skis, boots, poles, transportation, and hot drinks will be provided!
