Lighting up January nights
Kachemak Nordic Ski Club will start its Friday Night Lights at the Baycrest-DOT Trailhead on Jan. 4-5. The trail, lit by nearly 100 Tiki torches, is a unique ski experience for all ages and abilities.
A warming fire and hot chocolate will be available, and skiers are welcome to stay after skiing to enjoy the fire and good company. Snowshoes are encouraged, and head-lamps are recommended on dark nights.
Check the events calendar at http://kachemaknordicskiclub.org/ or KNSC Facebook page for the location.
