Ski Your Age event raises $500 for Mariner Nordic Ski Team

Skiers hit trails in annual Mariner ski team fundraiser.

The Homer Mariner Nordic Ski Team hosted the annual Ski Your Age fundraiser on Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021, at Lookout Trailhead.

The event had five categories for people to compete in, including Ski Your Age in Kilometers, Century Club (100 minus your age in kilometers), Most Kilometers as a Family, Ski 50K, or whatever the skier felt up to.

“The event went well,” ski team coach Katie Miller wrote in an email to Homer News. “The snow conditions weren’t ideal – it was warm and wet, pretty challenging – but several community members still came out to participate and we raised about $500 for the ski team! We had all age ranges represented, and even had some people participate long-distance, in Anchorage and Idaho. It’s always inspiring to see both young and old come out for the same event, and Ski Your Age really fosters that.”
