Bike/ski system does double duty

Mark Tanski rigged up a system sure to get him wherever he needs to go this winter – if he can’t bike there, he can ski.
The bike is longer than most, fitted with a pair of skis. Then he also brings food and water with him, and can head up to the bluff whenever he wants to get to ski trails.
“I bike everywhere. I don’t have a car. A bike is cheaper and this is a small town where you can get anywhere you need to go for work or play,” Tanski said. The biology-ecology major at Kachemak Bay’s Campus of the University of Alaska came here from Fabious, NY to study. After working at Alyeska as snowboarding coach, he set his sights on Homer for its scenic beauty and the college program. “I came to Alaska, and I didn’t leave,” he said.
