KNSC appreciates support

The Kachemak Nordic Ski Club would like to thank the Jenson, Willow, Schroer, and Lentfer Funds, all donor advised funds at the Homer Foundation, for the generous support provided for the purchase of new grooming equipment for the ski club.  

The money provided by this grant was used to help fund the purchase of a new Polaris ATV with tracks from Homer Saw and Cycle in Homer. This equipment is now being used to groom and maintain the ski trails at the  
Lookout Mountain cross-country ski area. This tracked ATV is replacing an older snowmachine.

In addition to providing a versatile alternative to a  
snowmachine for grooming the ski trails in the winter, it can be used for increased mowing and maintenance in the summer and fall. It will increase the ability of the club to provide the grooming necessary for the excellent skiing residents of Homer as well as winter visitors have come to expect. 

The trails maintained by KNSC provide cross-country skiing opportunities for all, from beginning skiers to experienced racers. We invite everyone to come out and experience the excellent groomed trails that our volunteers are able to provide with the help of the equipment obtained through projects such as  
this.

Richard Burton

Treasurer, KNSC
