The Tour of Anchorage ski event

One of the biggest and best events of the Anchorage winter is a ski race that crosses the whole city, held the same weekend as the Iditarod start. It’s the Tour of Anchorage, and it’s coming up soon, with some of the nation’s best skiers and plenty of regular folks who just want to go the distance. On the next show, we’ll talk with a winner of the race and an race organizer and competitor. We’re going to share some stories and some strategy, talk about how to race and how to train, and why a big ski race can be a good goal to help you work on your fitness and develop an outdoor routine, even if you’re a back-of-the pack skiers like me.
