The Kachemak Nordic Ski Club would like to thank the City of Homer and the Homer Foundation for the generous support provided by the city grant that KNSC received this year.
The money provided by this grant is used to help offset the costs associated with maintaining and grooming the Homer area trails maintained by the ski club. In addition to trails dedicated to cross country skiing, KNSC maintains summer trail access at the Eveline State Recreation Site, which is managed by the ski club. We are attempting to add additional year-round trail access at all of our areas.
Some of the money from this grant is also used to support efforts to obtain larger grants to help fund improvements to facilities at our ski areas. Having local government support through grants such as this is important for these additional efforts. This year we completed a 3-year project at Lookout Mountain that provides a permanent facility for equipment as well as shelter for the many school and community events held there each year.
The continuing support of nonprofit organizations provided by the City of Homer and the Homer Foundation is important for our effort to provide healthy outdoor recreational opportunities to residents of the Homer area as well as winter and summer visitors. It is just one of the many reasons that Homer is such a great place to live and play. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the trails that we maintain.
