Skiers needed for Ski-to-Sea “Car Free” division.

Attention adventurous skiers:  Are you interested in racing in Ski to Sea?  There is a new division called “Car Free”.  Teams in this division travel to and from all the race legs without motor vehicles.  Two teams that are still looking for skiers:

The Jedi Ponies (Alex Brede: bredefamilia at gmail.com ) need a downhill skier or snowboarder.

WeRideBikes (Lily Lewison: lily.lewison at gmail.com ) need a cross-country skier.

Racing car free is always a really fun way to enjoy a weekend; most teams typically ride bikes out to Silver Fir campground on Friday and/or Saturday.  As skiers you would be riding your gear up to the ski area either on Saturday (and staying at the Mountaineers’ Lodge) or Sunday before the race.  There are few things more satisfying than riding around with skis on your bike!

Here’s a web site that explains how one team did it.
