Cross-country skiing is a very special sport that draws teams together in a competitive and cooperative way. Athletes are often cheering on all athletes, while being especially supportive of their own team. This spirit of cooperation has extended to our communities. There were many races held on the Tsalteshi Trails this winter and every one had volunteers from Kenai Central, Skyview, and Soldotna high schools as well as members of the community at large.
On behalf of the Kenai Central, Skyview and Soldotna Nordic ski teams, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to all the volunteers and organizations who have contributed to an outstanding ski season. The Tsalteshi Trails Association and it's grooming crew, led by Bill Holt, kept the trails in great shape all season with a minimal amount of snow. The City of Soldotna provided a grant to Tsalteshi which also benefited the high school ski teams. We would espeically like to thank all the parents, former parents and supporters of cross-country skiing who spend hours outdoors timing, caring for athletes, setting up courses and stadiums and providing a truly top notch race for athletes. Visiting teams always like racing at Tsalteshi because of everything that these volunteers do to create a memorable event.
