Finish out the ski season by participating in an uphill/downhill ski race sponsored by North Idaho College’s Outdoor Pursuits beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 28 at the Lookout Pass Ski and Recreation Area.
Racers will test their endurance by skiing uphill to the top of the mountain, then their agility will play a role in the downhill race to the bottom. Each racer will complete two laps.
The race is designed as a fun event, so skiers are encouraged to wear costumes or silly dress as a celebration of the end of the ski season.
Awards will be given to the fastest male skier and the fastest female skier as well as the most outlandishly dressed.
Race entry is $10 and discount lift tickets and transportation are available through Outdoor Pursuits. Registration will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m.
