Huskies wrap up ski season Saturday at Boroughs in Kenai

The Homer Huskies traveled to the Tsalteshi Trails at Skyview High School for the Soldotna Classic Invite on Feb 22.
“The skiers were pumped up to put their classic technique to the test after weeks of refining their skills. Guest instructors including Kenton Bloom, Allison O’Hara, Cynthia Morelli and Carlin Rauch have worked with the team all season on classic skiing. While it was blowing and nasty in Homer, conditions were perfect up the road for a race. Coach Pete Alexson nailed the waxing for the conditions,” according to a press release.
The Huskies wrap up their season on Saturday when they travel to Kenai for Boroughs.
