Ski Club to host luminary ski Jan. 14 at Maasto Hiihto

HANCOCK -- The Keweenaw Nordic Ski Club (KNSC) will host a luminary ski from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday evening, Jan. 14, at Maasto Hiihto. A 2K ski trail (with a short cut for 1K) will be lit with candles starting at the Hancock Chalet. A fire will be provided in the parking lot and hot chocolate and goodies in the Chalet. Bring the family. Extra goodies to share would be appreciated by all. No fee but donations appreciated.

Call Glen Archer with questions: 482-4957.

KNSC's John Diebel reports groomers have been rolling and dragging Maasto Hiihto/Churning Rapids trails since yesterday.

"This last storm was just what the doctor ordered," Diebel writes. "We hope to have tracks set on all trails by this afternoon. Conditions should be excellent for the luminary ski from the chalet 6-8 p.m. Saturday night. Think snow."
