Great skiing conditions and warmer-than-expected temperatures greeted participants in the 15th annual Ski Your Age event at the Birch Hill Cross Country Ski Center on December 26.
More than 120 skiers participated in the free event, organized by Fairbanks Cross Country (FXC), the junior race-training program of the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks (NSCF). Skiers of all ages, from 3 to 83, skied 2,658 kilometers in this event that provides the opportunity for folks to get outside, to be active, and to socialize and share food and drinks.
The support of Wentz Orthodontics and Edward Jones financial advisor Christopher Knott was greatly appreciated by FXC, as this is one of the annual fundraisers for the team. The raffle prizes donated by Beaver Sports and Goldstream Sports added to the enjoyment of the event. Many thanks to FXC parents who volunteered and donated supplies, to hosts Lynne and Branden Petersen, and to participants who generously donated funds.
Attached is a listing of all the category achievements for those who signed up and recorded the kilometers they skied.
