Annual Kachemak Ski for Women this weekend
The annual Kachemak Ski for Women takes place this Sunday — yes, Superbowl Sunday — at 1 p.m. at the Lookout Mountain Ski Trail on Ohlson Mountain Road. The event acts as a benefit for South Peninsula Haven House.
Registration for the race starts at noon, and prizes will be awarded for costumes, including "attached" skiers, groups, partners and individuals. The course is considered an "easy" 5k on the hayfields trail. Everyone is welcome; a $15 donation for registration is suggested.
The event is sponsored by Kachemak Nordic Ski Club, and more information is available by calling Kris at 399-4412.
