With the success of the U.S. Nationals in our back pocket, the pressure has subsided but there are still plenty of races in the near future.  The High School skiers have a few under their belts already with the next race this Saturday (1/27) at Kincaid.  The Middle School ski season has just begun and the first race is TODAY (1/25) at Kincaid.  Both of those are great for spectators, but if you’d like an opportunity to volunteer, these events always welcome more help.  The AMH Anchorage Cup series will be putting on Pia’s Classic race at Kincaid this Sunday (1/28) followed by a Sprint race and the Sven Johansson both in February.  The 5th and 6th races in the Besh Cup series will be taking place in Fairbanks the first weekend in February and the Biathlon races are ongoing at Kincaid.  Let’s not forget those fun events that everyone loves…Alaska Ski for Women, Ski 4 Kids, TOUR OF ANCHORAGE, Ski Train and SKAN 24 race.  It’s not too late to sign up for most of those citizen races, but if that’s not your cup of tea, why not head out to cheer the skiers on to the finish line?  The atmosphere is energetic, upbeat, positive and fun…and who doesn’t need a little of that these days?!  Enjoy the trails!
