On this Outdoor Explorer, we’ll talk to Alice Tower Knapp, who grew up in Anchorage, skiing on the local ski trails and participating in events organized by the Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage (NSAA). She eventually ended up in the Middlebury College Athletics Hall of Fame, and was named to the US Ski Team. She recently published a book about the NSAA, called “On Track!”. The book focuses on the history of the organization, its role in the broader community, the advocacy and events organized by the group, and the individuals who have made the NSAA what it is today. Our conversation was recorded while out for a walk during a steady, cold rain at Russian Jack Springs Park one afternoon, soon before the arrival of the first snowfall of the winter.
